Body and athleticism:

Isaiah Hartenstein is a 6’11  power forward who has great size and physical tools for his position. In same time Isaiah has  great body control and good speed that goes together with  very long wingspan and big hands. Fluid athlete who can play above the rim with ease.He is a good outside shooter that can even pull up from deep.  Solid and good mechanic, quick release and he solid off ball target Has upside to play both as a pick and roll and pick and pop target.   He can attack the closeout very well and operate from high post. Capable making some home run passes and has pretty solid feel for the game.

Weaknesses : 

Hartenstein still lacks shooting confidence, actually  overall he is not consistent on offensive end.  On low post very left handed but doesn’t like to post up so much, rather pick and roll target.   On low post very left handed but doesn’t like to post up so much, rather pick and roll target.  Hartenstein has good  tools to be a  good defender but the only problem is his effort. Has rim protection up side and being so light on his feet can play different P&R defenses.  Anyhow lacks toughness, competitiveness and has poor  effort in close out defense.



Changed in middle of season from German PRO B to Zalgiris what is very interesting choice. Played well in Zalgiris U18 team. Lately got some minutes in Lithuanian top league. Coached but his father in Germany. Poor body language during the game

Overall Rating:

Huge potential but also huge question mark will he develop. Can be good decision moving in Zalgiris. Question is his attitude and will he develop to his fullest potential. Has huge NBA potential and fit.
