NBA Comparison: Luke Kennard/Alex Abrines

Strengths: Ubal is a confident shooter from beyond the arc who has a tremendous feel for the game around him … Pure, smooth-flowing three-point shot … Shows solid ability to catch and shoot as well as pull up off dribble … Moves well off the ball to get to his spots and knock down jumpers … Incisive passer with great court vision for a player as young as he is … Moves well laterally to stick with opponents and disrupt shots off the dribble … Flashy ball-handler and passer who is most effective in transition in both of these aspects … Good size for a wing at 6’6 and may still be growing … Capable of running an offense and working relentlessly off the ball to create space for open shots … Accurate passer who reads the game well in the pick and roll … Lots of potential if he can fill out and continue to improve consistency with his jumper … Played extremely well at the 2019 FIBA U16 Americas Championship averaging over 19 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists at the tournament … Pure scorer and shooter who could be an impactful spark plug when he reaches the NBA … Flashes star potential with streaky shooting and tremendous passing, but there is still plenty to learn as consistency is a problem …

Weaknesses: A lanky, young guard who needs to fill out his weak upper body … Does not have a lot of high-level experience … Probably still needs a few years to reach the level of an NBA player … Limited free-throw statistics are extremely poor for a combo guard as he is shooting 19/35 in this small sample size … It is difficult to grasp Ubal’s true talent level with scarce film and average competition … Average to below average athleticism, which should limit his playmaking potential but not diminish his shooting outlook … Struggles defending on the ball, which will only continue until he is able to bulk up and match the physicality level of the professionals around him

Outlook: International prospect for FC Barcelona II … 18-year-old prospect born in Montevideo, Uruguay … Showcased his potential at 2019 FIBA U16 Americas Championship … 6’6, 195 lb combo guard known mostly for shooting …
