NBA Comparison: Malcolm Lee

Strengths: 6’5 scoring guard … Provides a scoring mentality and scores in bunches. Can score from all three levels ... A scoring threat from anywhere within the half court and has range out to the NBA three-point line. Scores at the rim with either hand at various angles. Adjusts his body well in the air on difficult layups. Good midrange game with a pull up and floater … Squares up quickly ... Shoots well off the dribble or catch with a quick release and no wasted motion. Finished seventh in scoring over the Nike EYBL with 21.6 points per game at 55.9% from the floor ... Finished seventh in scoring at the NBPA Top 100 with 13.5 points per game at 52.6% from the floor … Quick first step and changes speed well with the ball … Plays well off the ball … Usually scores dribble using minimal dribbles. Good ballhandler and creates offense for himself. Gets his shot off against some of the best defenders and only needs a little bit of space … Plays with good aggression and confidence … Draws fouls at a good rate. Shot 6.4 free throws per game over the Nike EYBL … Good quickness, anticipation, and competitiveness on defense with active hands. Averaged 1.3 steals per game over the Nike EYBL …

Weaknesses: Labeled as a combo guard but is much more effective as a scorer than running the point ... Solid court vision and passing ability but if his scoring isn’t working for him, he doesn’t generally contribute much else offensively ... Can improve overall as a playmaker … Has tunnel vision at times and can improve shot selection … Can improve as a free throw shooter at 67.6% over the Nike EYBL … Good athlete but not incredibly explosive … Can work on limiting his turnovers with 2.4 per game over the Nike EYBL ... Only recorded five assists to seven turnovers in four games at the NBPA Top 100 … Slight frame and lacks strength. Finishing in the paint and fighting through the defense will be more difficult at the next level …

Outlook: North Carolina freshman … McDonald’s All-American … Scored 21 points and had four steals in the Jordan Brand Classic … One of the top scorers in high school basketball. White’s development as a playmaker will be important as an NBA prospect …
