Brian's scout report

Name: Brian Grant
Height: 6-9
Weight: 237
Position: Power forward
Other positions: Center
Strengths: Rebounding, shot selection, defense, intelligence
Weaknesses: Undersized, range

Brian Grant is really a 6-9 center, which is a very rare animal in the NBA. So he's likely to end up as a PF in the pros, which means that he'll have to develop a 15' jumper in order to be able to get some respect around his native paint. He is a great rebounder and defender with a great back-to-the basket game. He's played well against big time competition in various tournaments, although he didn't face much of it in his small conference. It may take him some time to adjust to facing dominant post players in the pros.

He definitely has the court savvy to make this kind of transition, as his high FG % shows that his shot selection is excellent. He is unlikely ever to be a dominant player, but could be the kind of solid defensive role player that fills out a team. Grant Long of the Heat comes to mind as a limited player who by sheer hard work has maintained his starting position and has become crucial to the team's success. Brian Grant could be that kind of player. I expect him to go low in the first round, or possibly early in the second round. He might go higher if a team is hungry for a power forward. A team like Chicago or San Antonio might be able to make use of his services, or perhaps Orlando.

Scout: Rob Clough

P.S: Brian Grant was selected by the Sacramento Kings with the eighth overall pick in the 1994 NBA Draft.
