Shawn Long (PHI) – “TBD” nike

(John Geliebter/USA TODAY Sports)


PHI Forward: 6’9, 255 lbs; 2nd year, Louisiana-Lafayette

NBA Role: (raw) inside-out big • UnderDOG

Another undrafted prospect making waves, Philly’s Shawn Long is a skillful big, can accomplish a lot in a day’s work; versatile scorer: Long isn’t advanced yet but features confident moves facing up (midrange Js, drive-bys), in the post (decent hook game), and as a finisher (rolls hard, rises high for flushes); good shooter – measure some looks but Long can hit when left unattended; rebounds well – strong frame, has a nose for the ball; needs to cut down on fouls, get quicker on rotations; more in-game experience will further improve Long’s rapid development – C or PF? – does he factor in PHI’s talented forward corps?

DOG Status: UnderDOG
