Draft Prospect Outlook

STRENGTHS

  • Dynamic athlete with incredible leaping ability; can impact the game playing above the rim (led college basketball in dunks last season)
  • Efficient shooter from inside the perimeter and effective from outside, too. He shot 41.7% from 3 during his time at Dayton.
  • Underrated passer and playmaker from his position who is quickly able to read defenses and make accurate passes when necessary

WEAKNESSES

  • Limited mobility moving laterally will hinder his ability to defend on the perimeter and switch onto more mobile wings and forwards
  • Explosive leaper, but physically he will have challenges matching up against bigger forwards in the post in the NBA
  • Average rebounder, especially for a player his size and at his position

PRO COMPARISON: Blake Griffin
