Why would you not think Brazdeikis is exactly that type of player? Because he's not hyper-athletic? Brazdeikis takes most of his shots inside the arc (about 75% in eybl), finishes well and with both hands (better than 55% from 2), and gets to the line (more than 6 times per game). He also averaged over 2 assists per game.
I think many confuse run/jump athleticism with an ability to take the ball to the rim and create. Sure you can get into the lane by blowing by your opponent--you can also do so by using strength and backing your opponent down, by using ball screens, etc. From what I've seen, Brazdeikis is very capable of being "that type of player>"
