Key Stat: 4.9 (career high in defensive rebounds per game, 2009-10 season)
Bargnani is the size of a center, blocks shots like a small forward and rebounds like a guard.
Such has been the up-and-down career of the former No. 1 overall pick, who currently finds himself sidelined with an elbow injury.
When it comes to his skill set, it goes shooting, shooting, shooting, breathing and then defense.
Although slight improvements have been made, Bargnani is still a pretty terrible defender. He doesn't rebound despite his size (4.0 career defensive rebounds per game), nor does he block shots with any regularity.
When Bargnani is on the court, the Raptors give up more points (112.1 to 107.3) then when he's off.
When matched up against opposing centers, Bargnani is registering a PER of just 4.0 while allowing a PER of 18.0.
Constantly being brought up in trade rumors this season, let the buyer beware when it comes to Bargnani's poor defensive game.
