Matthew Hurt is an agile, skilled big man that has a solid set of all-around skills. He can knock down jumpers, score on off-ball motion plays around the basket, and he also is a solid rebounder in games. He will need to improve his ability to create his own shot as well as show that he can guard upper echelon players, but he is a talented player whose basketball IQ, skill set, and motor could allow him to be a solid role player in the NBA.
