He's a nice offensive player but he doesn't play like a big man so there's some cognitive dissonance there. And honestly, I don't think he ever will play like a big man.

I'm going to reach deep into the bag here and make a Danny Granger comparison. I don't think he'll be quite that extreme (or that good), but Granger was a guy that did have a pretty good first step when he caught the ball facing the hoop and he was able to use that first step often enough to give him space to shoot from outside. Either Jankovick gets much bigger and develops sort of an Andrei Bargnani game (skilled big with range) or he stays skinny and becomes a Danny Granger/Raef LaFrentz sort, though not as good as those two.
I'm not expecting him to be Arthur Johnson by any means. However, I would expect him to have a semblance of touch from within 15 feet and I haven't seen any of that yet.

He looks like Generic European Big Man X in that he's suited for an international style of play because he can conceivably space the floor (although he hasn't displayed that ability in a game yet), but plays horrible man and team defense.
