    Analysis

    Aldrich is a classic low-post player - good height, solid body, and an array of hook shots and drop steps. He is fundamentally sound at his position, getting good position in the post, and using his strength to back his defender down to either get a layup or passing out to the perimeter for a 3. Defensively, he is just as sound, if somewhat unspectacular. He is a good shot blocker, avoiding contact and the fouls that come with it. His biggest weakness is when he is matched up with a leaner, quicker post player. He can be beat off the dribble or slow to defend a perimeter shot. Overall, he can be a solid NBA player with a team that runs a half-court offense, but may struggle to play effectively in an up-tempo game.
