NBA Comparison: KJ McDaniels/Joey Graham

Strengths: Has NBA athleticism with a strong, muscular frame and explosive leaping ability ... Defense is the greatest strength to his game ... An excellent defender with shut down potential ... Possesses good size at the wing position with a 6-foot-8 frame and solid length ... 4 years of college experience ... A mature, focused player who competes hard ... Uses his strength well to muscle opponents and create scoring opportunities ... Explosive athlete capable of highlight finishes over defenders ... Aggressive offensive rebounder ... Hits the boards hard and scores a lot of garbage buckets through desire ... Very good in the open floor as he utilizes his above average athleticism and body control well on the break ... Shot 45% from 3 as a junior (on over 3 attempts per game), but really struggled to get on track in Senior year shooting just over 25% ... Free throw shooting and overall shooting showed steady and significant improvement up until senior year ...

Weaknesses: Lacks a great offensive repertoire ... Struggles to create offense in the half court ... Not a very good ISO player as he lacks great ball handling and ability to pull up off the dribble ... Not much of a playmaker for others as he lacks vision and passing skills ... Jump shooting remains a real weakness to his game ... His inability to make outside shots consistently allows opponents to sag off him and play him for the drive, making it difficult for him to get by defenders ... Mechanics on his jumpshot are not fluid and lack consistency ... His shot lacks great arch, the release point is too low and he doesn't get enough elevation ... His shooting form breaks down against quality defenders or when he attempts shots out beyond 3 point range ... After a very strong junior year shooting from behind the arch, he has struggled mightily as a Senior ... After a redshirt year, lack of upside at 22 years of age decreases his appeal ...

Notes: From Alpharetta, Georgia ... Considered a borderline top 100 recruit according to recruiting outlets ... A Pre-Business major ... Declared for the 2016 draft and went through the predraft process but withdrew his name and returned for his senior season at Clemson ... Measured 6' 6.25'' barefoot, 6' 7.25'' in shoes, 213.6 lbs, 6' 10'' wingspan and a 8' 6'' standing reach at the 2016 NBA Draft Combine ...
