-19-year-old German center Leon Kratzer put together a solid camp, while also measuring 6' 10.75in shoes with a strong 249 pound-frame topped off by a 7' 2 wingspan and 9' 1.5 standing reach, very sufficient measurements for a center prospect. There isn't a whole lot of flash to Kratzer's game but he's very effective.
The Bamberg product is a big-time rebounder who uses his physicality to carve out space inside the paint both on the offensive and defensive glass. He displays an above average compete level and good instincts pursuing the ball off the rim, using his mobility to chase down rebounds outside of his area. He's able to use his developed frame to finish through contact and body up as a post defender.
All in all, Kratzer is fairly limited as a scorer and defender, as he doesn't have great touch or court vision, and is an average athlete in terms of lateral quickness and leaping ability, preventing him from bringing much to the table as a finisher and rim protector. With that said, Kratzer does a great job of staying in his lane and sticking to his strengths to add value. His upside is a bit limited by some of his shortcomings, but with the Bayreuth native is worth keeping an eye on as an energy rebounder who has the strength and length to impact the game.
