EvenMoney’s NBA Draft 2011 – Top 10 Power Forwards, #7

#7 – Matt Howard

Matt Howard is that supporting big man who helps a team gets to the next level. He stretches the floor with a solid jumper (40% on 3pters) so Guards can slash and Centers have operating room.

We like the fact that he improved each of his four years at Butler, a mid-major team that made back-to-back NCAA Tournament Finals appearances (2010 and 2011). Matt rebounds, has a nice all-around offensive game, and also plays enough defense to not be a liability when he’s on the floor.  

Still not convinced? Ponder the stats below and press play!

Matt Howard


 Out of 138 players:
·    Matt Howard is a first-round pick in only 1 of the 4 metrics, the one that calculates all-around skill/talent. He could go anywhere from 16 to 32.
·     Taking him at 16 is a big risk because we do question upside. But if a team feels ready to compete for a title, then it makes sense.
·     Considered as a whole (BPM), as well as for each specialty (PCM for Production; DIR for Defense; and TPA (Talent/Skill-set).
