NBA Comparison: John Scheyer

Strenghts: As a 6-7 SG, he has terrific size for the role, combined with a remarkable wingspan ... He’s a sharp shooter with fluid mechanics, smooth and quick release and range ... His shooting repertoire is complete, both pull-up jumpers and spot-up ... Over the last couple of years he has developed a floater, showing more aggressiveness in attacking the rim ... Defensively, his wingspan makes him a solid threat in the passing lanes.

Weaknesses: 93 born and still far too skinny to withstand contact at the NBA level .. A decent athlete but not very explosive, his legs are long compared to his upper body, negatively affecting his balance ... He’s not very effective nor creative in ISO situations, he’s better in the off the ball game using screens and cuts ... His lateral speed is average. Defensively he will likely struggle against more explosive and quicker opponents.

Notes: He made his debut with KFUM Uppsala during the 2009-10 season. He moved to Spain for the 2010-11 season by Manresa Basquet. Signed for the 2011-12 season by FC Barcelona, played with FC Barcelona 2nd team in LEB Silver and the 2012-13 LEB Gold. Sent on loan for 2013-14 season to Manresa Basquet. Has been member of the Swedish U-16, U-18 and U-20 National Team. Member of the Swedish National Team ... Was drafted by Atlanta with the 50th pick in the 2015 NBA draft ...
