NBA Comparison: Kobi Simmons

Strengths: 6’6 guard … Good length with a 6’10 wingspan … Quick in the open floor and thrives in an uptempo game. Uses dribble penetration to get to the rim … Solid ballhandler and passer. Drives and kicks to the open man … Good scoring ability and creates opportunities for himself. Averaged 12.4 points per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Averaged 12.3 points per game at the U18 Americas Championship in 2018 ... Averaged 14 points per game at adidas Nations in 2017 … Adjusts his body in the air to make impressive finishes at the rim … Good and committed defender. Knows how to put pressure on the ballhandler and make them uncomfortable. Averaged 1.3 steals per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Averaged 1.2 steals per game at the U18 Americas Championship in 2018. Averaged 1.4 steals per game at adidas Nations in 2017 … Good aggression and confidence …

Weaknesses: Smooth and quick but not an explosive athlete … Very light at 172 pounds, has much room to get stronger … Can improve shooting efficiency. Shot 41.5% FG% over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Settles for contested outside shots and is too quick with the trigger at times. Sometimes brings the ball up the floor and takes the first shot before a pass is made. Can improve as a three-point shooter. Shot 33.3% 3P% over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Shot 30% 3P% at adidas Nations in 2017 … Shot 69% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Shot 52.6% FT% at adidas Nations in 2017 … Can be lackadaisical with his passing and can take care of the ball better. Had nearly as many turnovers (30, 2.7 per game) as assists (31, 2.8 per game) over the Nike EYBL in 2018 …

Outlook: South Carolina freshman … Won Silver at the U18 Americas Championship in 2018 …
