How will PJ Washington’s next coach utilize his skill set? Is he a small ball four, a stretch four, a small forward or all three?
In due time we will have the answer. But what we do know at the present, is that Washington is a long versatile forward with an inside-out game. A forward that has expanded his offensive repertoire by becoming an improved shooter during his sophomore campaign.
At the NBA Draft Combine, Washington measured up at six feet eight inches tall with shoes and weighed in at 230.4 pounds. His wingspan spreads to 7’ 2.25” and his standing reach, eight feet ten and a half inches.
The majority of Washington’s scoring comes from the paint. But don't mistake this fact for a limitation. Around the basket, PJ’s points come from post ups, finishing plays, put backs and penetration. Washington is also very capable of stretching the defense and getting to the foul line.
In the post, Washington is can seal his defenders. Capable of making an over playing defender pay the price. He likes to back his man down and can change direction off the pivot and with baseline fakes. Some of his field goal attempts are set up with jump stops in the paint. He relies heavily on a right handed baby/jump hook.
