NBA Comparison: Dwyane Wade/Donovan Mitchell

Strengths: 6’4 combo guard with elite level athleticism ... Shows a good feel for the game and competitiveness ... Good size and length for position with a 6’9 wingspan and 8’4 standing reach ... Strong build. At 17, already has an NBA body ... Uses his strength well and should be able to add additional strength ... Finishes well with contact and can bully smaller guards ... High-level athleticism, good body control, and hang time ... Has a quick first step ... Gets to the rim and throws down dunks in traffic ... Gets going down hill with a dribble drive and finishes well with either hand ... Natural scoring ability ... Shoots well from three and can shoot from NBA range ... Needs just a little bit of space to get his shot off ... Adept ballhandler and drives with either hand ... Keeps his head up and has good court vision ... Reads double teams well ... Passes out of drives ... Good rebounder for his position ... Good tools and athleticism defensively ... Blocks shots well for a guard ... Makes the game look easy ... Good competitor and doesn’t lack for confidence ... Youth is on his side. One of the youngest incoming freshmen, won’t turn 18 until August, 2019 ...

Weaknesses: Can improve as a free throw shooter. Shot just 58.3% FT% over the Under Armour Association in 2018 ... Solid playmaker but has room to improve if he’s going to play both guard positions in the NBA ... Can work on limiting turnovers ... Can improve midrange scoring, tends to utilize deep threes or getting all the way to the rim ... Doesn’t really pick his spots as a midrange shooter or show much of a floater ... For someone who can get to the rim and challenge the help defender, he settles for a lot of deep, contested shots ... Can learn to incorporate more movement when playing off the ball ... Should study players like Steph Curry on how to use constant movement and coming off off of screens to set up shots ...

High School: Finished fourth over the Under Armour Association in scoring with 20.4 points per game while shooting a ninth best 52.3% FG% in 2018. Led the NBPA Top 100 in scoring with 17.6 points per game while shooting 56.5% FG% in 2018 ... Shot a fourth best 47.4% 3P% on 5.7 attempts per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018 ... Averaged four assists, one steal, 5.5 rebounds, 0.9 blocks, 2.8 turnovers per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018 ...

Notes: Native of Atlanta, Georgia ... Incoming Georgia freshman ... Scored 12 points in the 2019 McDonald’s All-American Game ... Scored 21 points in the 2019 Jordan Brand Classic ... Played in the 2017 Underclassmen All-American Game …
