The Brooklyn Nets Could Add Length And Touch With Anzejs Pasecniks
He possesses an average wingspan, but his sheer size should be enough to contest shots at the rim. But one issue that may follow him to the NBA is his strength. Pasecniks weighs in at 229 pounds, per Kevin O’Connor and The Ringer. As a comparison, Andre Drummond weighs in at 279 pounds and Pasenciks’ countryman Kristaps Porzingis weighs in at 240 – as a power forward. So Pasecniks may not be able to compete defensively against the girthiest NBA five-men.
Size, rebounding, and IQ
Pasecniks played all of his minutes at center for Gran Canaria, but he may be the rare case of a big player moving down a position. With the Nets, Pasecniks’ length would be welcome for the Nets, either at the power forward or center positions. The Nets’ power forward was a glut of undersized power forwards, with Quincy Acy, Trevor Booker and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson splitting time at the 4 spot – often outsized by opponents.
