NBA Comparison: James Posey

Strengths: Harkless passes the eye test at 6'8 with smooth athleticism and great length (wingspan is roughly 7'2) ... His ability to attack the rim from the perimeter gives him a distinct advantage over his defender who is unlikely to share his agility ... Quick first step and comfortable handle and footwork for his size ... He has a great feel for the rim, and can score by hitting off-balance shots at awkward angles ... His jumper has range out to 20 feet, and although he shot poorly from downtown, he has promising mechanics, especially when his feet are set ... He's got a quick second jump: he gets off the ground and reaches the ball before his defender, resulting in tip-ins and rebounds given his length ... Runs the floor like a guard ... Defensively he reads passing lanes extremely well, and frequently gets tips, deflections or blocks playing off the ball ...

Weaknesses:
Skill level is still in between the 4 and 3 positions, scoring frequently around the basket due to his length and athleticism ... Harkless struggles to create easy shots for himself in the half court, especially on the perimeter as a shooter ... Pull up off the dribble is not really in his repertoire... Only shot 44%, a low number considering his size and athleticism... Needs to add muscle... Number one task is to improve as a shooter, which will maximize his services playing the 3 ...

Overall: He's a great young talent who probably would have benefited from another year at St. Johns... Still, he has tremendous upside and could be a big-time contributor down the road ... Don't be surprised if he slips into the lottery with some strong individual workouts ...
