Solid shooter for a big man, has stretch big potential
Decent playmaker for his size

Solid rebounder
Has great strength

Summary:

Hunter Dickinson is a strong, physical center that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He can back down his opponents to score in the low post, and he also is a solid shooter off the catch.  He also tends to put himself in the right spots defensively.  On the other hand, he does not possess elite physical tools, and he can tend to be turnover prone.  He will need to trust his outside shot more, but still, he is a skilled big man that can score and rebound in the paint, and he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2024 draft.
