NBA Comparison: Devin Robinson

Strengths: Left handed, versatile forward… Great physical profile… Excellent athlete, passes the eye test… Has a huge wingspan… Open Shoulders suggest that his body could fill up well… A Very good leaper of two feet… Has all the physical tools to become a player that can play from small forward to center, but he is more of a power forward for now… Loves to run the floor… He is at his best in transition, fills the lanes and likes to finish strong at the basket… Has decent shooting mechanics for his size and length… Can play the Pick and Roll at an OK level as a Big… Has shown some promise in Pick and Pop situations… Likes to Face Up a lot and can do it an an OK level… Has some post moves and has shown potential turning from either shoulder, but prefers to turn on his right… Has the potential to be a menace on defense… Great lateral quickness, can support a switch everything defense and stay in front of guards… Has active hands that help him make some steals… Very good shot blocker, likes to come from the weakide and contest shots… Knows the law of verticality, which helps him avoid fouls…

Weaknesses: Really raw… Looks like he hit a plateau, hasn’t improved a lot the last couple of years… Basketball I.Q needs work… Feel for the game remains an issue… Emotions can get the best of him at times… He should bulk up to be able to absorb contact better… Depends too much on his instincts, athleticism and length on both ends of the floor… Must become more decisive with the ball in his hands… His touch around the basket is iffy, has the tendency to rush things… Misses some open lay ups, he should just dunk the ball… Has problems finishing through contact.. Must add counter moves when he is posting up… Very left handed dominant, makes him predictable… Despite his solid shooting mechanics, he is a bad 3-point shooter and an average free throw shooter… Has been used as a small forward, but he doesn’t have the offensive skillset to play on the perimeter… At times he is passive on offense, doesn’t look to have the confindece to take over… Doesn’t always sets steady screens, he acts too fast… Average passer… Turnover prone… Can lose focus on defense and mess with defensive rotations… Bigger opponents can post him up …
