NBA Comparison: Matt Bonner

Strengths: 4-man with a sweet shooting stroke and tremendous range ... Experienced forward who was one of the most prolific scorers (23 ppg) in the country in his Senior year ... One of the top overall shooters on the college level ... A floor spacer who cannot be left open on the perimeter ... With today's NBA shifting over to specialty players, his one dimensional game could be enough to stick in the league ... Knows how to operate on the block with solid post moves and rebounding ability ... Very good feel for the game and can put the ball on the deck in transition or facing up in order to create shots ... While slow, he does show some solid 3-man attributes with ball handling, passing and being able to face up and shoot ... Helped by today's NBA shifting to smaller 4s ... Despite below average run/jump athleticism, at times he surprises with the occasional ally oop dunk or breakaway dunk in which he displays decent explosiveness, without contact ... Hit 172 of 194 FTs in senior year, just a shade under 90%, illustrating what a phenomenal shooter he is ... Seemed to put more attention into playing in the post in his senior year. Getting to the line almost 7 times per game ... 10 boards per game shows his willingness to play physical and solid strength ... Engaged defender who had effiecient numbers playing against bigs in the Horizon League ...

Weaknesses: Likely to be overwhelmed by NBA athletes. A below average athlete by NBA standards ... At 6'8, moves like a center in a small forward's body ... Lack of size at the 4 position (6'8) compounds his athleticism concerns ... Very slow laterally and slow to react to plays ... He lacks the speed to defend SFs and ideal size and strength to defend in the post ... Not especially fast in the open floor. A bit of a plodder. Coming off a season ending injury (stress fracture in his foot) puts draft chances in jeopardy ... Level of competition was low playing in the Horizon League ... Shot well below expectations as a senior at 36.3% 3p, after hitting 44.0% and 46.6% from 3 as a Junior and Sophomore ... Drop in efficiency may be partially due to teams game planning to limit his looks from behind the arch ...

Notes: Averaged 23.0 ppg, 10.1 rpg, on 46.6% FG , and 36.3% 3p in 29 games ... Was mentioned by scouts heading into his senior year as a potential first rounder ... Plays like a mini Ryan Anderson ... Missed final month of his senior year following a stress fracture in his right foot ...
