NBA Comparison: Justin Holiday

Strengths: Dangerous scoring wing who can score from every level of the defense ... An explosive athlete with a near 40 inch vertical leap, McClellan finishes above the rim with consistency ... McClellan is a smooth, creative finisher, who can get to the rim with either his explosiveness or his finesse, depending on what the situation requires ... McClellan is also a very good outside shooter, connecting on 41% from 3 this season ... He's proficient on the catch-and-shoot, with his feet set, but he's also a great shooter off the dribble ... Great in transition, McClellan is on the finishing end of many an alley-oop. He's also a smart cutter along the baseline, creating easy alley-oop opportunities for any decent point guard ... On defense, he's got good lateral quickness to help him stay in front of his man and make up for subpar fundamentals ... His lane agility time was second-best of anyone at the combine ... He's a pretty good ball handler who can create his own shot with his strength and handles ... Very efficient offensive player who converted on over 50% of his field goal attempts (along with 41% of his 3's and 84% of his free throws) ... Pretty stepback jumper that makes him dangerous from mid-range...

Weaknesses: McClellan shot the ball very well on the whole, but he was a very streaky shooter, and when his shot wasn't falling, he often keep putting it up ... He's occasionally a willing passer, but once he gets into attack mode, he doesn't look for his teammates and he rarely passes out of the lane ... A bit temperamental on the floor. Gets on teammates verbally when frustrated and has poor shot selection when he starts to miss ... A bit thin, McClellan weighs under 200 lbs. and won't be able to be as physically dominant in the NBA ... Not the most fluid athlete ... Pretty good dribbler, but he doesn't always handle the ball very tight to his body, which could lead to more turnovers against NBA length ... Has good quickness, but his mediocre wingspan (6'7") and poor fundamentals and defensive awareness allow him to get lost on defense or sometimes lose his man ... Very old for an NBA prospect. McClellan is 23 and turns 24 in December ...

Overall: McClellan has an interesting array of offensive skills, as he's a stellar athlete with a good shooting stroke, but his inconsistent shot selection and temperament can be a detriment. He's a 23-year-old prospect, which isn't ideal, but if he still has some maturing left to do, he could smooth out his rough edges and become a great complementary wing scorer with a fair amount of ability at the defensive end ...

Notes: Second-Team All-ACC last season...Transferred to Miami from Texas in 2013...
