NBA Comparison: Wes Iwundu

Strengths: A flat out athlete with a strong vertical leap … Excels at scoring on the move … Uses his athleticism to dominate on the defensive end and guard the 1-4 positions … One of the Big Ten’s best perimeter defenders … His first quick step ability allows him to get into the lane and finish at the rim with ease … Has a solid mid-range jumper that is useful when he is playing against teams that run zone defense … Good scorer off the dribble … Has developed into an all-around player for the Wolverines … Averaged 12.2 points and 5.0 rebounds per game his senior season at Michigan … Very good size/length for a wing with a 8'6.5 standing reach ...

Weaknesses: Not a complete offensive player … One of his biggest weaknesses is his 3-point shooting, where he converted just 29.9% of his attempts from beyond the arc as a senior … Although his free throw shooting has improved in the past three years, he averages less than 65% from the foul line … A great on-ball defender, but his rebounding abilities need to improve to make an impact in the NBA … Not an elite ball handler and can be careless with the ball … Tends to struggle to score in traffic … Will turn 23 in November, making older than the average prospect available ...

Outlook: Matthews is an extremely athletic and skilled wing, but it is his defense that will likely land him a spot in the NBA … Must prove that he can consistently knock down spot-up 3-pointers … Could end up being a late second round pick in the 2019 draft, but may go undrafted … Will never be the focal point of an NBA team, but could be a solid role player on a second unit …

Notes: Measured 6'6 (with shoes) 172 lbs with a 6'7.5 wingspan at the 2013 Kevin Durant Skills Academy ... Measured 6'6.5 (in shoes) 180 lbs, with a 6'8.5 wingspan at the 2014 Kevin Durant Skills Academy ... Measured 6'4.5 without shoes, 6'5.5 with shoes, 187 lbs, with a 6'8.5 wingspan and 8'6.5 standing reach at the 2014 USA Junior National Team Mini Camp ... All-Big Ten, honorable mention (2019) … NCAA West Regional Most Outstanding Player (2018) … Named after NBA legend Charles Barkley … Did not play in the 2016-17 season due to transferring from Kentucky … Posted six 20-plus point games this past season …
