NBA Comparison: Matt Bonner

Strengths: 4-man with a sweet shooting stroke and tremendous range … Experienced forward who was one of the most prolific scorers (23 ppg) in the country in his Senior year … One of the top overall shooters on the college level … A floor spacer who cannot be left open on the perimeter … With today’s NBA shifting over to specialty players, his one dimensional game could be enough to stick in the league … Knows how to operate on the block with solid post moves and rebounding ability … Very good feel for the game and can put the ball on the deck in transition or facing up in order to create shots … While slow, he does show some solid 3-man attributes with ball handling, passing and being able to face up and shoot … Helped by today’s NBA shifting to smaller 4s … Despite below average run/jump athleticism, at times he surprises with the occasional ally oop dunk or breakaway dunk in which he displays decent explosiveness, without contact … Hit 172 of 194 FTs in senior year, just a shade under 90%, illustrating what a phenomenal shooter he is … Seemed to put more attention into playing in the post in his senior year. Getting to the line almost 7 times per game … 10 boards per game shows his willingness to play physical and solid strength … Engaged defender who had effiecient numbers playing against bigs in the Horizon League …

Weaknesses: Likely to be overwhelmed by NBA athletes. A below average athlete by NBA standards … At 6’8, moves like a center in a small forward’s body … Lack of size at the 4 position (6’8) compounds his athleticism concerns … Very slow laterally and slow to react to plays … He lacks the speed to defend SFs and ideal size and strength to defend in the post … Not especially fast in the open floor. A bit of a plodder. Coming off a season ending injury (stress fracture in his foot) puts draft chances in jeopardy … Level of competition was low playing in the Horizon League … Shot well below expectations as a senior at 36.3% 3p, after hitting 44.0% and 46.6% from 3 as a Junior and Sophomore … Drop in efficiency may be partially due to teams game planning to limit his looks from behind the arch …

Notes: Averaged 23.0 ppg, 10.1 rpg, on 46.6% FG , and 36.3% 3p in 29 games … Was mentioned by scouts heading into his senior year as a potential first rounder … Plays like a mini Ryan Anderson … Missed final month of his senior year following a stress fracture in his right foot …
