NBA Comparison: Austin Reaves

Strengths: A decisive floor general who is an expert at running efficient offense while making players better around him … A four-year starter with as much experience as any player in the 2022 NBA Draft class … Averaged over five assists per game with only two turnovers per game in his career … Disruptive defender with good size and length to switch 1-3 and hold his own on the perimeter against guards and wings … Significantly improved as a perimeter scorer in his senior year, shooting 38% on over four attempts per game with the Zags … Commanded the nation’s top scoring offense in both of his seasons in Spokane … Outstanding court vision with the accuracy and passing strength to make any pass on the floor … Has a terrific feel for pick-and-roll action and knows how to slow the game down for himself in these actions … Nembhard is everything you look for in a backup point guard with experience, poise and basketball IQ to lead an efficient and prolific offense … Knows how to play with tremendous pace and also slow the game down and thrive late in the shot clock … Has the potential to be a starter and/or role player for a long time in the NBA … Phenomenal performance at the NBA Draft Combine boosted his stock immensely …

Weaknesses: Lacks elite level speed and athleticism for the NBA game … Jump shot only just recently came around and isn’t a major part of his game … Will struggle to create for himself in the same way he did collegiately … Doesn’t translate as more than a 10 PPG scorer in his career … Upside does not match many of the other PGs in his draft class in the late first/second round range … Will turn 23 at the beginning of the new year … Didn’t face the same level of competition as his peers in the WCC in his final two seasons, but excelled at Florida in his previous two seasons … Struggled against high-end competition in his final season

Notes: Four-year starter at Florida (2 years) and Gonzaga (2 years) … Two-time All-WCC … SEC Freshman of the Year (2019) and WCC Rookie of the Year (2021) … Helped Canada to Silver Medal at 2018 FIBA U18 Americas … Won High School National Championship with Montverde Academy … Younger brother, Ryan, plays for Creighton
