David McCormack is a strong, mobile big man that excels at scoring around the basket, and he also rebounds the ball well. He will need to improve his face-up game and playmaking skills, and he will have to be a more focused defender on a consistent basis, but if he plays well this season, McCormack could project to be a rotational big man in the NBA.
