NBA Draft | NBA Mock Draft | 2006 Draft Profiles | Message Board

By Shawn Siegel

NBA Draft Profile: Oleksiy Pecherov


Team: Paris Racing

Birth Year: 1985

Stats: Euro Statistics


Position: PF

Height: 611

Weight: 225 lbs

Scouting Report:  Skilled big man hoping to avoid usual European label.

Strengths:  Solid jump shot and range, but also has improving moves in the paint.  A bit more aggressive than other European prospects, and not physically soft.  Quick enough to guard NBA power forwards.

Weaknesses:  Improving down low, but lacks explosiveness in the paint.  Offensive game better suited for being a small forward, but not quick enough to guard most NBA three's.  Though his lower body is physically impressive, his upper body lacks bulk and definition. 

Projected 2006 Draft Range: Late 1st Round to Early 2nd Round.

Consensus:  Pecherov has the skill to surpass other forwards that might be taken ahead. However, in some ways, he's kind of a tweener. His offensive game is more suited to being a small forward, but his body keeps pushing him more towards the Center position.
