Scouting Report

Brackins returned to Iowa State for a third season at least partially because he felt he could secure his status as a lottery pick. The move backfired, however, and the talented forward out of California might not even be a first-round selection. A definite top-20 pick had he left after his breakout sophomore season, Brackins struggled to duplicate that success in 2009-10, averaging 16.5 points and shooting 42.0 percent from the field after scoring 20.2 per game on 47.5 percent shooting in 2008-09. The regression has scouts projecting that Brackins could slip into the second round this June, or perhaps find a home late in the first if he can put together some strong workouts. Though Brackins' stock isn't as high as it once was, scouts still agree he could make a solid post player in the NBA. He's a versatile big man with the ability to score inside and outside, and he's athletic enough to succeed at the next level. There's more concern about how he'll fare on the defensive end, however, where he's shaky on the perimeter and not yet strong enough to hold his own in the post with NBA big men. Because of his lack of bulk, teams might view him as a stretch forward type when evaluating his NBA prospects, thus negating some of the benefits of his strong low-post game.
