Struggles to score in traffic
Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers

Summary:

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.
