NBA Comparison: Wally Szczerbiak/Joe Harris

Strengths: Mature, focused four year college player with tremendous shooting ability … Elite level scorer with excellent range and shooting skills … Steady improvement in his overall game over his four year college career is a testament to his focus, dedication and determination … Strong ball handling skills for his position … Scoring off the dribble is a strength and can finish around the rim with either hand with ease … Has a soft touch around the paint … High awareness, cuts to the basket at the right time and has great chemistry with his teammates … Nice mid range jumper and excellent shooting stroke… Unselfish player who teammates love to play with … Winning player who puts the team over individual accolades … Extremely efficient 3 point shooter with good shot selection … An automatic free throw shooter who shot 90% from the line this year … A fearless player with great focus and determination … Possesses a lot of grit and determination. Focused and tough player … Strong rebounder for his size and position … Can guard more than one position at 6’7, 220 lbs … Versatile wing player who has developed his ability to impact the game in ways other than scoring  … A gym rat … Worked hard throughout his college career on developing his strength and uses it well to create space and play bully ball against weaker opponents … Highly efficient offensive player, putting up incredible efficiency as a senior with 53.5 fg%, 45.3 3p% 88.5 ft%  at 18.9 ppg  … Not just an efficient 3-point shooter, but a prolific one as well, hitting 3 per game  … Tough to stop in transition with his scoring/passing ability … A solid leaper, who when given a lane to the basket can finish with exciting dunks …

Weaknesses: May take some time to adjust to the quickness and athleticism, of players at the next level, particularly on the defensive end … Not a standout athlete and may struggle to create looks with an average first step … Lateral speed is below average. At limes lacks the foot speed to stay in front of ball handlers … Already 22, so not a player with a great deal of potential left to develop … Needs to work on overall athleticism to keep up with quicker perimeter players on defense … Pick and roll, two man game needs some refinement …  Could stand to improve his defensive stance against perimeter players … Can improve on fighting through screens … Can also become more aggressive and intense on the defensive end … Played a majority of his games against lesser competition in the WCC, so some may question how effective he can be against superior athletes night in and night out … Likely will not be afforded the same quality of looks without the benefit of such a talent edge with his teammates over opponents, creating open looks for him …

Outlook: Showed improvement all four years in  scoring efficiency and rebounding … Clutch performer … Not afraid of pressure … Was the player Gonzaga called upon when they needed a clutch basket (BYU game). Gonzaga’s go-to scorer and a team leader … High IQ basketball player with a vast offensive repertoire … Needs to continue to improve athleticism and ultimately bring more on the defensive end … Figures to find a spot in the mid-to-late lottery in this year’s draft …

Notes: Measured: 6’6.0” barefoot, 6’7.25” in shoes, 8’6.0” standing reach, 223.8 lbs, 6’7.0” wingspan at the 2021 NBA Draft Combine  … Tunred 22 in March … Native of Edmonds, WA … A four year college player with a great deal of maturity and experience … Smart, hardworking individual, had a 3.96 GPA in high school …
