WAS Center: 6’11, 250 lbs; 10th year, France

NBA Role: scrappy center • Salty DOG

France’s Ian (pronounced “yahn”) Mahinmi: one of the most valuable backup centers in the NBA; never-ending hustle, offensive rebounding and defensive energy define Ian’s game – it took him a few years to hone in on what he’s good at but now, he’s well-established a basketball identity; offensively, Ian graduated from ‘found money’ status in 2015-16 – gets nice positioning before releasing righty hooks on the baseline, is confident taking midrangers; poor foul shooter, slow release; huge buzz on the glass, strong & quick: never assumes a shot is going in, alters his body for tip-ins; Ian’s settling into Scott Brooks’s second unit

Signature Shot: midrange J
