NBA Comparison: Lamar Odom

Strengths: 6’10.5 athletic and versatile left handed forward … Good size and length for position with a 7’0.5 wingspan … Great athlete, gifted with tremendous coordination and fluidity at his size. Plays well above the rim with great body control … Can score from multiple spots on the floor. Shows some variety; can score in a different way each possession. Has range out to the three point line as well as the ability to score in the post. Can distribute and drive out of the post as well. Good slashing ability, excels when driving to the basket. Operates well on the baseline. Has a good running hook and touch on floater. Doesn’t settle for three too much. Plays well in transition especially as a finisher. Selective when attacking and passing out. Plays under control, doesn’t duck and force himself to the basket. Good touch around the rim. Shot 52.3% over the Nike EYBL … Has great potential as a defender and can defend multiple positions. Moves his feet very well. Can defend the perimeter and hedge on screens. Good shot blocking ability, gets off the ground quickly and has good timing … Impacts the game in multiple categories. Very good rebounder on both ends. Finished top five in the Nike EYBL with 10.6 rebounds per game … Plays with good confidence and aggression. Highly unselfish. Sees the floor well and very willing passer. Shows some ability to handle the ball at his height … Shows some technique in his game, doesn’t always rely on his superior natural ability … Good at getting to the free throw line … Naturally has a well expanded game and can do a bit of everything with solid foundation. Can improve his game without having to completely adding new dimensions …

Weaknesses: While he can do a bit of everything, he still has much room to improve upon in those areas and isn't totally polished in them yet ... Has the ability to put the ball on the floor but ball handling can tighten up ... Can improve consistency as a shooter especially from the outside, as he only shot 19.5% from three over the Nike EYBL. Post-game is basic and has much room to expand ... Shows good instincts as a shot blocker but can improve protecting the paint moving forward … Can work on limiting turnovers. Averaged a one to three assist to turnover ratio over the Nike EYBL … Older for his class, in some cases a full year older than others in the 2018 high school class …

Outlook: After sitting out most of his sophomore season, Bagley had an impressive Nike EYBL season averaging 20.9 points and 10.6 rebounds per game while shooting 52.3%. He is among the nation’s best regardless of class and has been on the radar since middle school. He will play his junior season at Sierra Canyon. Bagley has the potential to be a big time player at the highest level.

Notes: Measured 6'9.5 without shoes, 6'10.5 with shoes, 208 lbs, with a 7'0 wingspan and 8'9 standing reach at the 2014 USA Junior National Team Mini Camp ...
