Evaluation: Pollard is a guy with great athleticism and length and is a terrific finisher. He is very good in transition and is great above the rim. Pollard is also able to finish with both hands and has a good pull-up jumper in the mid-range game. Pollard is a great shot-blocker as well for a wing and impacts the game on the defensive end. However, one of the biggest things he can improve on is his perimeter shooting. He can develop better range from beyond the three-point line and become more consistent from outside.
