NBA Comparison: Danny Granger/Shane Battier

Strengths: 6’8 smooth and versatile wing prospect … Good size, length, and fluidity for a wing. Uses size and length to shoot over defenders. Good half-court offensive game ... Can score and distribute out of the high post ... Transitions well from set shooting position into a low driving position and vice versa … Advanced footwork. Uses pivots, step backs, and fade aways … Very good midrange scorer and has begun to extend his shooting range ... Can score from multiple spots on the floor … Handles the ball well and has solid court vision. Can create for himself off the dribble … Has shown the ability to facilitate with the ball in his hands over his high school career ... Does an excellent job of forcing contact and getting to the foul line ... Understands how to play around the rim, can be a mismatch for smaller defenders as well as challenge bigger defenders … High level rebounder for a wing … Strong competitor. Seems to have self awareness and plays for the team … Solid defender, has the tools and ability to guard multiple positions … Shows surprising leadership for a player his age ... Doesn't have any major weaknesses to his game ...

Weaknesses: A high level athlete, but not a jump out of the gym freak ... Lacks strength for physical play at higher levels but should add strength in time … Has the ability to make difficult shots but tends to settle for deep contested shots. Fades away at times when it's unnecessary … Shooting is decent, but in need of improvement. Form doesn't show any major issues, but is more of a solid shooter than knockdown at this point ... Can improve range and consistency as a three point shooter … Can improve finishing in traffic by adding strength … Very long and smooth, but lacks a great burst off the dribble. First step is just average ... Tends to over-dribble at times … Likely a 3 as his lack of great foot speed limits his effectiveness off the dribble, and his size and shooting fits the 3 position ...

Outlook: Tatum has been on the radar for a few years and considered one of the top prospects in the talented 2016 high school class. His commitment along with Harry Giles headlines a talented incoming Duke freshman class and projects to make an impact early on. He was named to the McDonald’s All American Game, Jordan Brand Classic, and Nike Hoop Summit; with a solid showing in each game.

Notes: Measured 6'8 (in shoes) 193 lbs, with a 6'9 wingspan at the 2014 Kevin Durant Skills Academy
