NBA Comparison:

Strengths: English is an intelligent, 6'5 off-guard who has dramatically improved upon his core strengths as a senior ... One of Kim's most under-valued strengths is his recognition of open space ... His awareness off the ball allows him to occupy the spot on the perimeter that provides him with maximum room and minimal contest in catch and release situations ...As a shooter, English consistently shot around a respectable 37% from downtown over his first three years, but went up to a scorching 45% as a senior ... Off the dribble (Few dribbles the better), English is capable of launching off the bounce, and has the ability to make defenders pay for going under on-ball perimeter screens ... Though not an adept shot-creator, he finds ways to elude defenders and finish when attacking the rim north/south ... Defensively he plays with concentration and intensity, which is all you can ask from someone who lacks strength and explosive athleticism ...

Weaknesses: Physically, English has a skinny frame and underwhelming strength/explosiveness for a shooting guard ... Lacks the length that helps shooting 2s get cleans looks while being defended ... Not much of a shot-creator ... When putting the ball on the floor, English is athletic enough to take it north/south to the rim, but isn't shifty enough off the dribble to his shake his defender east/west ... Can't separate off the dribble, making him a one-dimensional offensive threat as a spot-up shooter ... He could have trouble guarding stronger 2s like Iguadala or Joe Johnson, though he only really projects as an 8th man or so anyway ... Low ceiling prospect...

Overall: Kim's role at the next level will likely be as a specialist, but one that several teams could use when you consider the impact of a reliable three-point threat ... He still needs to put on bulk so he can body up with stronger 2-guards, but with a high basketball IQ and appealing complimentary features, English should land a job from a team looking to support its ball-dominant scorers ... If teams are looking at English, they're not focused on his deficiencies as much as they are focused on maximizing his strengths ...
