NBA Role: backup center/shot-blocker • UnderDOG

Jeff Withey’s a shot-blocker who’s trying to carve out a defined role in Quin Snyder’s system; suited as a backup center – in the past, Withey’s been used as a situational presence to alter shots – but has started a few games after injuries in Utah; not much of a threat to create offense (w/ his back to basket) but has a (kinda) respectable midrange jumper if left open and will flash down the lane for a short hook – does a good job of keeping the ball high; old-school, 70s-80s-90s center: has one solid skill (blocks) & is sticking around because of it!

DOG Status: UnderDOG
