Agile forward with excellent speed running the floor ... A defensive minded player who takes great pride in his ability to defend Fundamentally sound rebounding technique with a knack for timing the ball off the glass A presence as a shot blocker, his athleticism and good lateral quickness allow him to defend out to the perimeter and be a good on-ball defender.
Lacks a midrange game at this point. He has bad positioning in the offensive paint when looking for the ball, this really hurts his chances of getting good quality entry passes to work on his low post moves

  NBA - Hornets, Weber Agree To Two-Year Deal  - by Eurobasket News - 6 days ago

The Hornets and Briante Weber (6'2''-PG-92, college: VCU) agreed on a two-year deal, Shams Charania of The Vertical tweeted Friday. Putting the undrafted 24-year-old in position to back up Kemba Walker for the remainder of the 2016/17 campaign. Though the exact terms of the deal haven't been announced, even if the second year of the contract isn't guaranteed Weber appears in line to get more than enough of an opportunity to prove his worth over course of the season's final month. Weber has done relatively little across stops with the Warriors and Hornets this season but has only played more than a handful of minutes twice all year. Now that the struggling Hornets have started to come to terms with the fact that their playoff hopes are fading, that could change. Per Jerry Stephens of Fan Sided's Swarm and Sting blog, head coach Steve Clifford is open to slotting Weber ahead of Brian Roberts and the injured Ramon Sessions on the depth chart providing a slightly larger sample size for the guard to prove that there is legitimate value behind his impressive D-League statistics. Weber averaged 16.5 points, 7.3 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game in 31 contests for the Sioux Falls Skyforce this season.

The scouts decsribe him following way: (by Matthew Maurer for NBADraft.net in 2007)
Shows good mobility, running the court with ease. Has worked hard to improve his touch around the basket. Possesses great hands, capable of catching most passes without fumbling or losing control of the ball. Solid rebounder who uses his long arms and hands to tip balls out of position to himself. Solid finisher where he wastes little time, keeps the ball high and goes right up.
This lack of strength can work against him when he faces physical forwards limiting his ability to get good position in the post. Can be stunted by double teams as he doesnt always read the defense quick enough to react
