NBA Comparison: Kevin Martin

Strengths: 6’5 wing … Good length with a 6’10.25 wingspan and 8’6 standing reach … Good ball handler, crafty and shifty with the ball. Creates and penetrates well off the dribble, effective half-court player. Creative finisher at the rim and uses either hand when driving, and finishes at different angles … Good athlete. Quick and can finish above the rim … Good scorer and takes what the defense gives him. Doesn’t predetermine his game, reads and reacts well. Averaged 16.5 points per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 and 22.8 points per game at 52.1% FG% in 2019. Finished 9th in scoring with 13.6 points per game at 49.3% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Quick release and shoots off the catch or dribble … Draws fouls at high rate. Shot a 7th most 7.5 free throws per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Good free throw shooter. Shot 79.1% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Shot 86.2% FT% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Plays well in transition as a leader and finisher … Good rebounder on both ends. Averaged 8.1 rebounds (2.3 offensive) per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Good length and moves well with quick feet as a versatile defender, can defend any perimeter position. Averaged 1.3 steals per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 and finished 10th in 2019 with two steals per game. Averaged 1.4 steals per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Blocks shots well for a wing …

Weaknesses: Skinny and can add a lot of strength, still has some physical maturing to do. Can improve playing through contact … Smooth athlete but isn’t incredibly explosive … There’s no doubt that Boston is effective as a shooter, showing midrange and extends out to the NBA 3PT line but his release is a bit low and results have been inconsistent. Shot 40.7% 3PT% at 3.9 attempts per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 but shot an underwhelming 24.2% 3PT% at 3.4 attempts per game in 2019. Shot 23.5% 3PT% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Can play loose with the ball. Sees the floor and passes well but still developing as a playmaker. Averaged 1.2 assists to 1.5 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Averaged 2.5 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 …

Outlook: Kentucky commit … Transferring to Sierra Canyon for his senior year … 2019 All-EYBL: Second Team … Scored 24 points and earned MVP of the 2018 Underclassman All-American Game …
