NBA Comparison: Harrison Barnes

Strengths: 6’8.5 athletic and versatile forward … Good size and length with a 7’1 wingspan and 8’9 standing reach … Strong build … Good patience. Doesn’t force offense … Fluid athlete with good body control. Quick off the ground. Elevates to finish dunks with ease and gets up for rebounds. Good transition finisher. Quick second jump and first step … Good in and out crossover. Good slashing ability. Gets low on his drives and gets into the paint. Drives out of the high post and works the baseline. Good footwork in the paint … Good at drawing fouls … While still developing, his jump shooting showed progress throughout high school and shows good form. Shooting range extends to the three-point line. Can score from multiple spots on the floor … Good defensive versatility and potential with his athleticism, length, and anticipation. Defends well on the ball and in the passing lanes … Good rebounder on both ends. Scores a fair amount on second chance points. Can take defensive rebounds to the other end of the floor … Unselfish and instinctive. Good court vision and passing ability. Passes out of drives …

Weaknesses:
Can pick up the intensity on both ends. Lets the game come to him but could be more aggressive. Can lack the edge on 50/50 balls. Can disappear through stretches … Still improving strength and filling out his frame to help finish through contact … Can improve as a shooter, especially off the dribble. Can improve from both three and from the free throw line … Can improve creating off the dribble. Dribbles a bit high when picking up speed with the ball … Can improve finishing at the rim when he doesn’t dunk … Needs to keep the ball high and protect it after rebounds and in traffic. Averaged 1.2 assists to 1.9 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL … Older for his class, turned 19 during his senior year of high school …

Outlook:
Measured 6’8.5 in shoes, 207 lbs, 7’1 wingspan, and 8’9 standing reach at the 2018 Nike Hoop Summit ... Incoming Wake Forest freshman … French prospect who transferred from INSEP to Wesleyan Christian Academy for his junior and senior year of high school … Scored 13 points in the Jordan Brand Classic … Scored 11 points and grabbed 15 rebounds (seven offensive) in the Nike Hoop Summit … Averaged 14.9 points per game over the Nike EYBL while shooting 50.6% … MVP of the 2015 Jordan Brand Classic International Game with 17 points (7-10), seven rebounds (four offensive), and five steals …
