NBA Comparison: James Ennis

Strengths: In the mold of a three-and-D player, the 6’8 220 pound forward has shown growth over his four-year college career … He shot 34% from deep this past season after cooling down after a hot start in his career … Overall his splits were 45/34/80 … 65% shooter at the rim … 75% of his threes were assisted, has shown the potential to be a good catch and shoot player … High motor and good rebounder, has averaged 8.5 or more the past three years … Moves effectively without the ball … Can score in the low post … Playmaker on occasion … A good athlete ...

Weaknesses: Has had two major knee injuries, major concern going forward … Will turn 22 in July. While not too concerning, he's older than many of the players that will hear their names called … Concerns exist with consistency, level of compatition … Limited experience against high-level competition … May struggle adjusting becoming a role player after having been the go-to guy the past few years … Could be a tweener at the next level, stuck between a 3 and 4 … May ultimately end up not doing anything well enough to stick, especially if his shot does not translate …

Outlook: There are questions about how Hervey will fare against NBA-level competition, as he has not had the most difficult opponents at UT Arlington ... He is a high motor player, whose strengths lend himself to be a small-ball four in the modern NBA ... If he continues to improve and focus on those things, he can find himself a spot in a rotation ... Teams are looking for mid-major or four-year players who could be steals, and Hervey fits the bill of both ... It goes without saying, but any team looking to draft him should make sure his knees are sounds.
