NBA Comparison: Kevin Durant

Strengths: 7’1 3&D big man … Good size and length with a 7’3.5 wingspan … Well-coordinated and skilled. Good mobility, runs the floor well with long strides and covers a lot of ground on drives. Gets off the ground well and translates it on both ends … Spaces the floor well and very good shooter, especially at his height. Shoots well midrange and 3PT, as well as off the catch or dribble. Has had proper form, quick release, and no wasted motion in his shot before he even enrolled in high school. Good potential in pick & pop situations and face-up offensive game. Shot a tournament best 53.8% 3PT% on 1.9 attempts per game at the U19 World Cup in 2021 … Good free throw shooter. Shot 77.8% FT% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Can score inside out. Good footwork and skill set in the low post. Good ambidexterity around the basket, doesn’t hesitate to use his left hand when contested … Averaged 10.6 points per game at 49.1% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019. Averaged 11.9 points per game at a 2nd best 62% FG% at the U19 World Cup in 2021 … Good ball handler at his size, can crossover and shift with the ball. Can take a rebound to start the offense. Plays on and off the ball … Very good shot blocker with great timing that projects to translate at higher levels. Challenges everything around him and isn’t afraid to get dunked on. Led the NBPA Top 100 in blocks with 2.3 per game in 2019. Averaged a 3rd best 2.7 blocks per game at the U19 World Cup in 2021 … Good rebounder on both ends and reliable converting offensive rebounds into baskets. Finished 3rd in rebounding at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 with 7.6 per game … Good awareness. Doesn’t hunt scoring opportunities, plays within himself and within the flow of the game. Good passing ability and consistently hits cutters. Knows his options when he catches the ball in the half court and doesn’t force up bad shots, even after offensive rebounds which is rare for young players. Distributes well out of the high and low post. Good touch on lob passes and plays a good high/low game if paired with another big man. Averaged 3.3 assists to 1.4 turnovers per game at the U19 World Cup in 2021 … Good intensity and competitiveness, yet still under control … Impact player on both ends …

Weaknesses: While he isn’t afraid to play physical, he possesses a slight frame and lacks strength in both upper and lower body. Playing and finishing through contact may be an obstacle at the next levels. Gets knocked off balance after contact when driving and in the post at times due to lack of base strength. Turns it over at times putting the ball down in traffic as well as handling double teams … Good around the rim but still has room to expand his post-game … Very mobile and although length can cover, he doesn’t have the quickest feet when defending the perimeter … Older for his class, turned 19 his senior year of high school …

Outlook: Gonzaga freshman … 2021 McDonald’s All-American … Named to the 2021 Jordan Brand Classic … Named to the 2021 Nike Hoop Summit … MVP of the 2021 Iverson Classic … 2021 Morgan Wootten National Player of the Year … 2021 Naismith Prep Player of the Year … 2021 Gatorade Player of the Year … 2021 Minnesota Mr. Basketball … Led USA to win Gold at the U19 World Cup in 2021, earning MVP and named to the All-Tournament Team … Scored 16 points in the 2019 Underclassman All-American Game …
