Analysis

Faried has become an interesting prospect to NBA teams. He is a high energy, unorthodox players who finds ways to score and rebound. On offense, he is a tremendous offensive rebounder and is a great finisher in transition. He is undersized for a power forward, but uses his athleticism to out-hustle others to loose ball and open spots. When he sets up in the post, he often makes awkward moves. On defense, Faried is a good shot blocker and rebounder, though he needs to become a more physical defender in the post. With some more coaching, Faried should be able to harness his athleticism into more effective play.
