NBA Comparison: James Augustine

Strengths: Effortless stroke and shoots with confidence out to 17’ ... Crafty passer, especially from the high-post when looking for cutters ... Operates comfortably with his back to the basket when given room to operate – gets defenders off-balance with solid footwork in and around the paint ... Effective use of counter-move (up and under) shows opponents’ respect for his right-handed baby hook ... Outstanding shot-fake that complements his steady mechanics well; close-out defenders tend to want to leave their feet to block his shot after seeing his methodical routine before rising up ... Sneaky around the tin, often drawing contact when he cannot finish (5.0 FTA/gm and .744 from the stripe as a senior) ... Tremendous backline defender at the collegiate level ... Great communicator, eyes always up, and quick to rotate from the helpside ... Will not struggle grasping defensive concepts at the next level (i.e., defensive three-second violation/various ways of defending the PNR) ... Exceptional timing on blocks (averaged 2.2 bpg in both junior and senior years).

Weaknesses: Deliberate release – needs room to get his shot off when facing up ... Only hit 11/34 from distance as a college senior and does not possess NBA range at this point ... Tends to finish with his left hand on either side of the rim ... Prone to foul trouble ... Although he only fouled out twice during the 2011-2012 campaign, Watt racked up at least 4 personals in 11 contests as a senior ... If not corrected, his penchant for drawing whistles could hurt a team wanting to play Watt in spot duty late in quarters with automatic free throws being awarded after the 5th team foul at the NBA level ...
