NBA Comparison: Jrue Holiday

Strengths: 6’4 polished combo guard … Good size, length, and versatility for position. Can play on or off the ball … Good strength and doesn’t shy away from physicality … Good athlete and displays it well in both the half-court and in the open floor. Comfortable jumping/dunking off either foot in game situations. Quick first step … Shoots off the catch or dribble. Can pull-up midrange or shoot from 3PT and is a threat to score from anywhere on the floor. Very good touch on floater and hits tough/contested layups at the rim … Reliable free throw shooter. Shot 84% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2021 … Averaged 14.6 points per game on 47.8% FG% over the Nike EYBL in 2021 … Good ball-handler and plays at different speeds. Effective in the pick & roll whether getting to the rim, passing, or rejecting the screen. Doesn’t rely on triple threat to get to the rim as he can break down the defense and split defenders with his dribble. Pushes the ball in transition and puts pressure on the defense … Good passing and ability to make reads. His athleticism and passing makes him dangerous in transition with his ability to lead and finish. Averaged 4.5 assists to 1.8 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL and a 2nd best 5 assists to 3 turnover per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2021 … Good rebounder for position. Averaged 6.8 rebounds per game over the Nike EYBL in 2021 … Takes pride on the defensive end and defends well on and off the ball. Sticks well when defending on the ball and can pick the ball-handler. Defends well and physical without fouling. Led the NBPA Top 100 in steals with 3 per game in 2021. Blocks shots well for position and has a knack for chase downs. Averaged 1.3 blocks per game over both the Nike EYBL and NBPA Top 100 (3rd best) in 2021 … Natural feel for the game. Knows how to play aggressive without forcing. Has a good balance and understanding of when to play on/off the ball as well as when to step up as a scorer vs. when to facilitate, playing his game no matter who he’s matched with or against. Understands his teammates personnel and utilizes them where they’re most effective … Positively impacts every statistical category … Top competitor …

Weaknesses: Nitpicking a bit as Wallace is well rounded but still has some areas he can work on as he progresses levels … Respectable 3PT shooter but still has room to improve consistency. Shot 35.2% 3PT% on 4.2 3PT attempts per game over the Nike EYBL and 36.4% 3PT% on 3.7 attempts per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2021 … Can work on limiting turnovers when operating in traffic. Averaged 3 turnovers per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2021 … Good athlete but isn’t the most explosive prospect. A notch below some of the other guards in his draft range, Scoot Henderson, Thompson twins …

Outlook: Incoming Kentucky freshman … 2022 McDonald’s All-American … Scored 15 points and recorded 3 steals in the 2022 Jordan Brand Classic … Scored 13 points and passed out 6 assists in the 2022 Iverson Classic …
