NBA Comparison: Justin Reed

Strengths: Versatile forward who can face-up and scores well near the basket ... Got to the line at a good rate and made his FT attempts at an almost 80% clip as a senior ... Showed improvement on the defensive glass throughout his time in college ... Showed potential as a pick and pop jump shooter ... Solid athlete, has some ability to get up ... Strong body and willing to use it to create contact, space ... Had relative success in isolation situations, really grew into his game and became much more efficient during his final year ... Gained a grat deal of confidence at the end of 2013, averaging 20.2 ppg and 8 rpg over his last 11 games ... Lowered his turnover rate significantly, showed improved decision making ... Scored at an incredibly high rate when given transition opportunities ... Has worked on scoring at all three levels efficiently and for the most part did so at Oklahoma ... Progess made on catch-and-shoot as well as a defensive player was great under his last two seasons under head coach Lon Kruger ... Can put the ball on the floor in space and is tough to stop with a head of steam

Weaknesses: Undersized for a PF ... Lacking lateral and straight line quickness to defend forwards effectively at the pro level ... Did not do much offensively out of the pick and roll ... Had a very difficult time defending the post, which does not bode well for his likely NBA position ... Not overly aggressive as an overall rebounder, especially on the offensive glass ... While he showed potential as an outside shooter, had a very small sample size to go by ... Was able to use strength to overpower at the NCAA level, will be much more difficult to do so in the pros ... Has difficulty keeping larger players off the block and fronting due to foot speed ... Trouble staying in front of spot-up shooters, can be beat on the outside as well ... Conditioning could use some work, help him become more agile, flexible ... Can have trouble with the double team ... Not particularly long ... Did not do much when given the ball in the post, had trouble creating offense for himself in situations where his back was to the basket

Notes: Born in Frankfurt, Germany ... Spent first two collegiate seasons at Mississippi State before transferring to Oklahoma for his last two ... First team All-Big 12 selection as a senior after averaging 16 ppg and 7 rpg, leading Oklahoma to the NCAA tournament ... Averaged 19.0 points on 62.1% FG and 85.9% FT in team's 11 Big 12 wins ... A likely stretch 4 who has solid strength and is an intriguing face-up game, while he has potential to improve as a defender ... Drafted 51st by the Orlando Magic in the 2013 NBA Draft
