NBA Role: offensive-minded pivot • UnderDOG

Brooklyn’s Justin Hamilton: a journeyman big w/ a soft touch from long range; Hamilton’s an interesting, hybrid pivot – he’s built like a more traditional center (hard to push around at 7 ft., 255) but has the outside stroke to keep up w/ today’s ‘nontraditional’ game; very good pick & pop shooter – loves taking straightaway threes, sets hard screens to give his guard room to operate; good shot-blocker, learning how to defend better without fouling; struggles to check quicker bigs but defense isn’t a glaring issue – Hamilton’s offense is more of what Kenny Atkinson’s needs in unit #2; sleeper DFS pick, Hamilton is one of a few guys who’s earned touches
