NBA Comparison: Kyle Weaver

Strengths: A combo guard with good quickness and length … Getting out in transition is his strong suit, as he has a long stride and can change direction without losing speed … A decent athlete, he has the ability to finish with an improving mix of moves around the basket … Using his length he can extend to the rim and complete plays with both hands … He is showing a better understanding of how to shield the ball and absorb contact by using his body on drives … His quick first step and long strides make him a dangerous slasher, and he has the ability to turn the corner and find the gaps in the defence when getting to the hoop … He handles the ball well and can make moves in the open court that allow him to create space and separation … Shows a nice repertoire of moves of the dribble as well, and he knows how to get his defender off balance in order to get separation … Moves fairly well without the ball, reading the spacing on the weakside and cutting to the basket with well timed cuts …Has continued to work on his shot, and improvements are evident in his percentages … He has a nice defensive package and his understanding of positioning allows him to make plays within the team concept ... His length and lateral quickness are also tools which will allow him to defend both guard positions at the next level …

Weakness: His position will be a question mark in the NBA… Not a great decision maker, he does not play with the poise nor does he have the mentality of a playmaker … He does not make good decisions in traffic, he has a tendency of leaving his feet to make passes and does not usually deliver the ball on target … Has almost a 1/1 assist to turnover ratio for his career, further showing that he is a liability as a primary ballhandler … As an off-guard, he lacks the frame and mass to be able to battle with the bigger and stronger opponents … His biggest deficiency is the continued inconsistency with his jumpshot, which allows defenders to play off of him and take away his penetration … Even with the improvements, he still shoots a different jumper almost every attempt and his elbow tends to go too far to the outside … The release point also varies and he has a bad habit of hanging too long in the air and shooting on the way down (especially off the dribble) …

Notes: A number of guards who struggled to thrive in Ben Howland’s system at UCLA have gone on to flourish in the NBA, and this fact will certainly help Lee’s case. However, he does not posses the physical package or the skill set that his predecessors did and a complete comparison is certainly unjustified.
