NBA Comparison: Jrue Holiday

Strengths: Late blooming shooting guard with a picture perfect shooting stroke ... Undersized at 6'3 for the two position but has a 6'10 wingspan allowing him to play bigger ... Very controlled game, stays on balance, won't rattle easily, doesn't bite on fakes, composed, mature game ... Shows a lot of determination and competitiveness ... Adept in iso situations. Hunts shots ... Shows excellent hesitation moves and knows how to free himself for looks ... Utilizes crossovers and stop and start dribble moves well to freeze defenders or get them off balance ... Composed defensive player who anticipates well and generally doesn't gamble or overplay passing lanes ... Uses his big wingspan well to disrupt opponents looks and passing lanes ... Hits nearly two 3s per game on a very solid 38% clip ... A career college 40% three point shooter ... His length gives him additional time and space for looks ... Quality decision maker, showing a value for possessions ... Solid a/to efficiency at 3 to 1.7, however more comfortable playing at the 2 position ... Comfortable handling the ball in traffic and creating offense for himself ... Very strong frame, excellent body strength to complete drives and not get knocked off his path by bigger opponents ... Quality free throw shooter, showing improvement each season ... Good rebounder for a guard, though his rebounding has curiously fallen off from his sophomore to junior seasons (5.8 to 4.1) ... Very good midrange game, and understands how to post up a smaller defender and make plays around the basket ... Doesn't often settle for bad looks ... Gets feet set quickly. Stays on balance and has good form with follow through ... Good touch around the rim ... Finishes well after contact ... Has developed a tear drop that he utilizes to finish over bigmen in the paint ... Solid drive and dish player ... Uses his body well to screen off the defenders for shots and getting a body into shot blockers ...

Weaknesses: The age of a senior. Turns 22 in May giving him less upside compared with most of the other prospects available for this year's draft. Likely cannot afford to wait another season to enter draft ... Not adept as a facilitator/ball handler in pick and roll situations ... A solid athlete with good efficiency in transition, however he lacks elite explosiveness ... Could be more aggressive taking the ball to the basket and drawing contact and free throw opportunities ... At times seems too content to park in the corner and look for catch and shoot opportunities ... May struggle to free himself against bigger and better athletes as he lacks a great first step ... Solid passer though not a player that necessarily creates open looks for others with his passing ... Appears to be more of a 2 foot jumper making him a little less fluid in finishing on the break ... Could improve upon his ability to set up defenders running them off of screeens and staying more active off the ball ...

Notes: Considered a likely 2018 draft entrant ... A bit of a late bloomer who has flown under the draft radar until this his junior season ... Reminds some scouts of Jrue Holiday as there is a resemblance in his body type and playing style ...
