NBA Comparison: Dorell Wright

Strengths: 6’9.5 forward … Good length for position with a 7’3.5 wingspan … Well-coordinated, fluid, and a good athlete. Finishes plays above the rim with ease … Averaged 12.2 points per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Good shooting mechanics and ball rotation. Can shoot on the move, coming off screens and curls. Can shoot from midrange and has range beyond 3PT. Shot 38.7% 3PT% on 5.3 attempts per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Solid free throw shooter. Shot 77.3% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Good tools as a versatile defender and covers a lot of ground. Averaged 1.2 blocks per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 …

Weaknesses: Must expand his half-court game and find consistent ways to score. Good tools and talent but has a way to go to tap into his potential as his game hasn’t caught up to his natural ability … Tweener right not, while he’s not a big man, he doesn’t consistently have the perimeter skills to play the wing full time at the next level … Can improve efficiency. Shot 16.7% FG% at adidas Nations in 2017. Shot 38.6% FG% on 11.1 shots per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Shot 39.6% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 … Can improve as a ball handler … His pull-up is predictable, and he settles for outside shots … Can improve strength in both upper and lower body … Drifts to the perimeter often, doesn’t have much of a post-game and doesn’t utilize his size much around the basket … Can play much more aggressive. Shot 4 free throws over 5 games at adidas Nations in 2017. Shot 2.1 free throws per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Only shot 5 free throws over 8 games at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 … More of a thinker than reactor … Doesn’t rebound at the rate his talent and tools suggest. Averaged 1.4 rebounds per game at adidas Nations in 2018. Averaged 4.9 rebounds per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Older for his class, turned 19 in January of his senior year of high school …

Outlook: Ohio State freshman … Played his senior year at Brewster Academy … Scored 12 points in the 2019 Jordan Brand Classic …
