NBA Comparison: Rip Hamilton

Strengths: 6’7.5 wing … Good size and length (6’9.5 wingspan) for position … Good scoring ability ... Good in catch and shoot situations, can also pull up off minimal dribbles ... Can freeze the defense with a quick behind the back dribble before shooting ... Smooth shooting stroke and quick release ... Good elevated jump shot ... Shoots well on the move ... Shoots well from three ... Very dangerous midrange scorer ... Active without the ball and works to get open … Quick first step. Good explosive ability ... Gets off the ground quickly and can make impressive finishes above the rim on occasions … Rebounds well for a wing. Reads offensive rebounds pretty well … Has the size, length, and athleticism to be a good and versatile defender moving forward … Aggression level has improved …

Weaknesses: Ball handling needs to improve ... He can create space using one or two dribble moves with his defender on him but lacks a transition handle going full speed ... Can improve as a playmaker, averaged 1.4 assists to 2.6 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL … Has much room to polish his skills, tends rely on natural talent at this stage ... Plays loose and can improve offensive efficiency ... While he can hit difficult shots, he doesn’t really pick his spots or have ways of getting easy baskets ... Driving, adjusting to the defense, and decision making can improve. Shot 20.8% from three over the Nike EYBL. Can add consistency to his jump shot, tends to miss different ways each time (too short, too long, to the side, etc) … Lacks strength at this stage of development …

Outlook: Louisville freshman … Played in the McDonald’s All-American Game and MVP of the Jordan Brand Classic with 26 points while shooting 10-13 and 6-7 from three … Helped lead La Lumiere to a 27-1 record and win the Dick’s National Championship with 17 points and five rebounds … Bowen has a lot of natural ability and projects to be a perimeter scoring threat as his career progresses ... Tightening up his skillset and keeping the game simple will benefit him down the road … Averaged 18.9 points and 7.4 rebounds per game over the Nike EYBL.

Notes: Nephew of NBA player Jason Richardson ... Nickname is "Tugs" ... Measured 6'6, 178 lbs with a 6'7 wingspan at the 2014 Nike Elite 100 ... Measured 6'6 (in shoes) 180 lbs, with a 6'8 wingspan at the 2014 LeBronJames Skills Academy ... Measured 6'5.5 without shoes, 6'6.75 with shoes, 178 lbs, with a 6'8.5 wingspan and 8'7 standing reach at the 2014 USA Junior National Team Mini Camp
