Evaluation: Hammons is a big body who has great size and finishing ability around the bucket. He is a presence on both ends of the court and runs well from end to end. He also has good hands and has some quality interior scoring moves in addition to good touch around the bucket. Hammons is a very good rebounder, too, and is mobile for his size. He needs to make sure that he’s in good shape so he can keep getting up and down the court at the rate as he does. Hammons can also improve on his counter-moves so he can become a better scorer inside.
