Nazr Mohammed

Vital Info
Height: 6'10"
Weight: 221 lbs.
Position: Center
Born: 9/5/1977
College: Kentucky
Drafted: 1998 - 1st Round, 29th Overall

Player Type: Undersized rebounding center
Strengths: Mohammed wasn't blessed with great size or athleticism, but he can rebound with anybody, especially on the offensive glass. He's also not the worst finisher in the world, having shot 50 percent or better from the floor in 4 of the past 5 seasons, and he has a half-decent short-to-medium range jumper. In addition, he can block shots and does a solid job of drawing fouls.
Weaknesses: His hands are legendarily bad, as his high turnover rates will attest to. He is also a defensive liability because of his height and lack of quickness. Mohammed will never be considered a big scoring option in the post, and doesn't run the floor especially well, so a good deal of his points are of the garbage variety. He has a rep for being injury-prone -- although he has played 80 or more games in 3 of the past 5 seasons.
Favorite shot: Second-chance shot off an offensive board.
