NBA Comparison: Jimmy Butler

Strengths: Versatility and athleticism to play and defend either wing position … Quick burst as a rebounder on both ends of the floor … Very active at playing the passing lanes … Improved shooting range substantially during his time at ASU … Runs the floor really well, played heavy minutes and was constantly asked to defend the other teams best wing scorer … Good at playing without the ball, scoring by slashing and movement … Plays to his strengths, does not take many shots outside of his comfort zone … Nose for the ball, was one of the better rebounding wings in college basketball … Solid work ethic as he made great strides during his 3 years in the NCAA … High release on his jump shot, solid shooting mechanics … Gets really low in his stance on his defense, covers a lot of room, plus maintains similar low base in post situations to provide leverage … Willing to get into physical situations and put his body on the line, definite hustle player

Weaknesses: Very rudimentary offensive game, does not create much for himself … Usually sticks to shooting either inside or outside, not much of a midrange game … Did not become a high level contributor until much later on, wonder how much ability he has to build on the player that he already is … Strong, yet still slight, could have issues guarding larger wings … Free throw percentage was low (66.4%) during his senior season, large drop off from his two previous getting to the line at a much lower rate … Much more equipped to a transition and fast paced offense as opposed to half court setting … Still needs to refine his finishing outside of the paint, developing a floater or step back … Can be pressured into making mistakes … Aggressive defense can lead to picking up fouls

Notes: Named All-Pac 12 1st Team All-Conference and All-Defensive during his senior year … Had 13 double-doubles as a senior after having none over his first two seasons at Arizona St. … Before ASU was at College of Southern Idaho, where he was a medical redshirt during his initial of two seasons … Showed a great deal of improvement throughout his college career and really put his athletic tools to use while improving his skill set to turn into a nice looking role player option at the next level … Seems to be slotted in the mid to late 2nd round area as a utility wing that could eventually turn into a disruptive defensive option …
