NBA Comparison: Luke Walton

Strengths: Big, versatile forward with a very high basketball IQ ... Stands 6'9.75" in shoes, which is an ideal height for a small forward at the next level ... Fluid runner ... Doesn't jump out of his shoes, but gets around the court well ... Very active off the ball ... Is relentless running up and down the baseline ... Finds ways to lose his defender ... Uses screens well ... Has a very pure shooting stroke ... Great shooting mechanics with a smooth release ... Shoots with confidence out to 25-26 feet away from the basket ... Scrambles the defense with a lot of shot/pass fakes ... Solid ball-handler that will sometimes play a “point-forward” role for his team … A creative and unselfish passer ... Always seems to know where his teammates are and displays excellent timing when getting them the ball ... Great rebounder (7.8 RPG in 2010-2011) … Outstanding instincts in pressure situations ... One of the most clutch players in the draft ... Well-known for making a 75-foot game-winning three point shot at the buzzer in overtime against North Carolina State on January 3rd, 2010 ...

Weaknesses: Not very aggressive as a scorer ... Has a lot of offensive ability but only seems willing/comfortable playing within an offense and taking what the defense gives him ... Probably more unselfish than a player with his ability should be ... Nothing more than an average athlete and lacks a great amount of explosiveness around the rim ... Only an average defender ... Prone to getting beat off the dribble ... Will struggle guarding athletic small forwards at the next level, but lacks the strength to guard power forwards ... Is a surprisingly poor free-throw shooter … Shot only 55.7% from the stripe in his senior season …

Overall: Parsons is a fantastic team player ... He doesn't have to dominate the ball to be effective and he is very a willing passer ... He's not going to be a defensive stopper or a go-to scorer, but he could be a very serviceable player off the bench for a good team ... Look for him to be taken in the early second round ...
