Pros:

Decent low post scorer
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Adequate shooter for a big man, has stretch big potential
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent playmaker
Decent rebounder for his size
Solid motor

Cons:

Needs to improve his outside shot

Summary:

Jaime Pradilla is a high-motor combo forward that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He can score off the dribble and out of the post, and he also has shown an improved jump shot lately. 

He also has played in some of the toughest professional leagues, as he has played in the Spanish ACB League and in Euroleague.  He’s not an overwhelming athlete and he will need to show that he can consistently excel against taller, more athletic opponents, but his ability to make shots combined with his solid production overseas could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA.
