NBA Comparison: N/A

Strengths: Austin Freeman is coming off a nice bounce back season averaging 16.5 points in his junior year at Georgetown ... A 6'4 shooting guard with a strong build and a wide frame, Freeman has an excellent outside game with a smooth, clean release ... He excels at spotting up, and shot an extremely high percentage from downtown at 44% ... Has a good understanding of spacing and moves well without the ball to get open ... He can pull up off the dribble from mid-range with a high comfort level ... He has a decent first step that allows him to get to the rim, where he shields the ball from his defender well and can finish with both hands ... Defensively, he uses his strength whenever he can to compensate for his poor lateral quickness ...

Weaknesses: Freeman lacks athleticism at a position that requires it at the NBA level ... Both his lack of height and wingspan should make it even more difficult to overcome his athletic limitations ... He is not an adept ball handler, usually relying on his strength to overpower his defender and get to the rim ... Not much of a factor on the boards or in the playmaking department ... Defensively, he's not laterally quick enough to stay in front of his defender, projecting poorly at the next level in terms of guarding quicker, athletic and more versatile guards ...

Overall: Was diagnosed with diabetes during his junior year ... Freeman is one of the better scorers in the Big East, but will have to find his niche in a spot up shooting role to be effective at the next level ... His potential in the pros will only go as far as his outside game takes him, limiting his overall ceiling ... With more expected touches this season, it would be of Freeman's best interest to work on some one on one moves to help diversify his offensive skill set ... His value is maximized playing alongside a center who attracts double teams, or with a point guard who can break down the defense and work the drive and dish game...
