NBA Comparison: Devin Harris/Jordan Clarkson

Strengths: Fantastic size for a PG with quickness and athleticism to go along with it, was incredibly potent on both sides of floor with potential to translate as a two-way player at NBA level … Athleticism and strength should help him get playing time right off the bat, plus his size gives him added versatility … Has a chance to be able to defend either guard position, great feet and instincts as an on-ball defender … Averaged 2.5 spg in 2016, 2.7 spg in 2015, with this ability being seen as one of the more translatable across levels of basketball … Definitely can get out and run, while also showing an ability to run pick-and-roll … One of the premier playmakers in college basketball, asked to do a lot for his team offensively and has skill at getting teammates involved … Has shown some ability to use his size and quickness on offense as well … Good nose for the ball, strong rebounder for a guard and very aggressive … Ability to get into the paint is there, can create off of the dribble and has an explosive first step … Improved quite a bit as an outside shooter, took a greater volume of three-pointers and shot a better percentage at 37.2% his final year … Conditioning is solid and also apparently checked out well as far as his past injuries

Weaknesses: Has been known to play out of control, was quite turnover prone … Had a 1.77:1 assist-to-turnover ratio, not an ideal number for a college PG, much less an NBA PG … Still quite inconsistent as a jump shooter, seen as someone you can play off of and force to take low efficiency shots … Offensive game still has a long way to go, for as athletic as he was, one might have expected him to be a more high volume scorer at Providence … Struggled greatly jump shooting from every level, he needs to work on shot selection and on developing a floater or moves closer to the hoop … Not incredibly efficient in iso scenarios, needs to work on finishing at the basket … Had a bevy of injuries that came along during his college career, including two shoulder injuries that caused him to miss almost the entire 2013-14 season … Already 22-years old, some have wondered whether he may be ahead of certain players in the draft due to his age, and question his potential ...

Notes: Measured at 6’3” without shoes, 6’4.25” with shoes with a 6’9.5” wingspan and a 8’4” standing reach at the 2016 NBA Draft Combine … Two time Big East Player of the Year and Big East Defensive Player of the Year in both 2015 and 2016 … Consensus 2nd Team All-American in 2016, after averaging 16.4 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 6.2 apg and 2.5 spg in 33 mpg … Career averages at Providence were 12.8 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 5.8 apg and 2.2 spg in 31.5 mpg … Had the ability to come back for an additional season, though chose to (wisely) bypass his senior year … Would have had a chance to be drafted close to lottery range last season, though chose to come back this year and the growth he showed along with his obviously impressive physical tools, two-way ability made him a mortal lock for the top half of the lottery … Has been through quite a bit in his life, though shows maturity, leadership ability and is seen as the gem of this drafts PG class

Strengths: Point guard with excellent size, versatility, athleticism and potential ... Possesses a very quick first step to blow by opponents, utilizing it well to attack the basket ... Led the NCAA in assists throughout most of his junior year, displaying great ability to pass and create shots for teammates ... Excellent ISO player utilizing his quick first step and ability to pull up and find teammates on the move ... Feeds the post extremely well, finding the open man and getting them the ball ... Does a good job of driving, drawing defenders and then finding the open man for jumpers ... Very fluid run/jump athlete with ideal size and length for the position ... Appears to have a wingspan in neighborhood of 6'8 ... Huge hands give him supreme control of the ball ... Great leaping ability and body control allows him to finish plays at the rim with ease ... Makes highlight plays attacking the basket ... Has shown improvement in his ability to knock down shots, in particular pull up jumpers ... Excellent defender with great anticipation on steals (2.8 per game, good for 4th in the nation) ... Above average rebounding numbers from the point guard position 5.6 rpg ... Excellent ball handler, very comfortable with the ball in his hands, setting up the offense ...

Weaknesses: Struggled to get on the floor in his first two seasons, playing in just 29 games over that span with injuries to the same shoulder. Took a medical hardship in his freshman season ... That concern for future injuries makes him a bit of a wild card ... Turnover prone at 4.1 per game. Must cut down on mental errors and show more value for the ball ... Should look to improve upon making baskets in catch and shoot situations, and playing without the ball ... Must improve as a pick and roll facilitator. Much better in isolation and in the open floor than pick and roll ... Needs to become better at not getting out of control on drives, develop a better runner and pull up instead of always forcing the ball inside and drawing charges and blocked shots ... Played in a depleted Big East Conference, putting his standout statistics under skepticism ...

Notes: Led Providence to a surprising 22-11 season and 11-7 in the Big East in his junior year ... Was second in the country in assists with 7.6 per game ... In December of 2013, had season ending surgery to his right shoulder ... Measured 6’4’’ in shoes, with a 6’9’’ wingspan and 205 lbs at the 2015 Nike Basketball Academy
