NBA Comparison: Dante Cunningham

Strengths: A defensive minded forward with a blue collar work ethic and high effort level ... Has solid athleticism and great length with a 7-foot wingspan ... A surprising outside shooter, connecting on 43% of his 3 point shots as a junior and 37% as a senior (2.0 makes per game) ... Shows some ability to defend on the perimeter and in the post ... Solid decision maker with a positive a/to ratio ... Productivity showed a solid increase in each of his four seasons in college ... Team oriented player with four years of experience (three in the SEC) ... Ability to play as a small ball four could give him some added intrigue ... Solid at finishing around the rim and strength gives him the ability to play through contact ... Strong offensive rebounder and gives good effort on the boards ... Seems to have a solid understanding of what he does well and doesn't try to do too much or play out of his comfort zone ... Big hands give him good control of the ball ...

Weaknesses: Limited as an offensive player ... Not great at creating offense for himself. Too predictable and too much of a straight line player when he tries to ISO and drive ... Shot has mechanical problems as he shoots it from his shoulder and sort of slings the ball ... An older player as a 23 year old senior so therefore not viewed as a player with a great deal of upside left to develop ... Could be viewed as a "tweener" player lacking a position as he's not truly a small forward and too small to play as a full time 4 ... Hit a decent 73% from the line as a senior but shot very poorly in both his freshman (58%) and junior seasons (59%) ... Lacks much of an ISO game, not a great ball handler ... Shot a low FG percentage for a forward (44%), granted a high number of shots came from the perimeter (50% of all FG attempts were from 3) ... Difficult to see him as a full time SF as his ball skills aren't great, and he lacks the lateral speed to stay with quick wing players ... Shooting form is not ideal. Although he's got good efficiency, it may be tough for him to extend his shot further without reworking his form ... A good athlete, but not a great one ... Has absolutely no post game, which is unfortunate because he could use it at the next level as a SF that posts up smaller wings ...

Notes: 6' 6.5'' barefoot, 6' 7.75'' in shoes, 212.6 lbs, 6' 11.75'' wingspan at the NBA Draft Combine ... Measured 6'7.5 (in shoes) 214 lbs, with a 6'11.5 wingspan at the 2014 Kevin Durant Skills Academy ... Averaged 14.7 ppg and 8.3 rpg as a senior ... Sat out the 2012-13 season after transferring from from Virginia Tech following his freshman season ...
