Preston is an all-around SF, gifted with very good physical skills. Strong body, athletic and great explosiveness make him a player able to attack and finish near the rim strong, absorbing easily the contacts! Preston has become a very solid shooter from the long range, this season he recorded the 41.6% for a total of 62/149. Very smart player and unselfish, he loves play with the team, even if he is able to carry the team on his shoulders when necessary. Defensively Preston has everything to be an elite defender. Good lateral quickness and footwork, solid frame and athleticism, great shot-blocker for his position. Always able to adapt himself in every situation of the game and make the difference in a lot of different ways. His desire to improve and be competitive make him a great teammate and that kind of player that every coach loves to have in his team. This year despite not a crazy year for Palencia he finished with a total of +55 in the final +/- of the team (with the second at +38 and only other two players with a positive stat) sign that with him on the floor the team was playing much better.
