NBA Comparison: Jimmy Butler

Strengths: High flying athlete with good size/length for the wing position ... Spectacular dunker. Strong, explosive legs and very aggressive attacking the basket ... A terror in the open floor due to his above average run/jump athleticism. Ennis gets out for a lot of breakaway dunks using anticipation and long arms to jump passing lanes ... Shows solid touch and good shooting ability ... Displays a textbook shooting motion and the ability to set his feet quickly and get a shot off in rhythm ... Possesses great size and athleticism to play the 3 position ... Good shot selection, using pump fakes well to get opponents off the floor and set up shots ... Shows the ability to pull up off the dribble as well as spot up and knock down shots in catch and shoot situations ... Skill level has steadily progressed through hard work ... Solid three point shot, knocking down 36% from distance on a high volume of shots (5 per game) ... A quality ball handler, showing comfortability going through his legs, though more effective in catch and shoot than creating shots off of ISOs ... Plays with good energy. Hustles ... Led the 49ers in both scoring (16.5) and rebounding (6.7) ... Despite low a/to numbers, shows good vision and passing skills ... Plays with good energy, slahing to the basket for rebounds ... Comes from a strong family, willing to work hard ... Mature player with 4 years of college under his belt ... Despite being a senior, shows good potential left to develop ... Measured with a 6'11 1/2 wingspan at the Portsmouth Invitation Tournament ...

Weaknesses: A "momentum athlete". Lack of a quick first step to blow by opponents makes him less of a threat in ISO situations ... At times gets sloppy and forces passes, 3.0 turnovers per game were too many although he had the ball in his hands a lot ... Lacks experience at a high level. Played just two years at Long Beach State after transferring from Ventura Junior College. Level of competition is not top shelf playing in the Big West Conference ... Will turn 23 a few days after the draft making him a little old for a senior ... Not a physical player, and can be pushed around in the paint due to a lack of upper body strength ... Should look to tighten up his handles further ... Lateral quickness could improve with better fundamentals ...

Notes: Had numerous highlight reel dunks in his 2 year Long Beach State career ... Could be one of the biggest sleepers of the 2013 draft ... Participated in the college dunk contest this year ... High jumped 6-feet-11 while in junior college, winning the Western State Conference and Southern California Regional championships.
