NBA Comparison: Andre Miller

Strengths: 6’4 point guard … Good size for position … Very good ball handler, court vision, and passing ability. Alert with very good instincts. Reads and reacts, doesn’t predetermine his offense. Knows where the pass is going before he receives the ball. Effective distributing in the half-court and leading in transition. Very good timing on lead passes, hits teammates in stride and makes accurate cross-court passes. Finds teammates at times when they don’t realize they’re open … Quick, shifty, and creative with the ball. Breaks down the defense and is effective with his dribble, changing speed and direction to fit into tight spaces. Splits defenders. Gets to the middle to dump off to the open man or kick to the open shooter when the help comes. Makes one-handed passes on the move with either hand. Difficult to pressure in the back court and isn’t fazed by a defender guarding him tight, keeping his dribble alive … Good body control and shows creativity as a finisher, scoring at various angles. Can drive going to his left or right … Solid strength. Initiates and handles contact well offensively, draws fouls at a good rate. Shields the ball on drives and anytime in traffic … Improved as a shooter during his senior year, showing ability to hit from NBA 3PT range without hesitation … Good defender on and off the ball. Sticks to his man in a defensive stance and has a knack for clean swipes on the ball. Anticipates and jumps passing lanes with quick hands. Averaged 1.4 steals per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019. Good timing and shot blocking ability for position …  Solid rebounder for position and has a quick second jump on offensive boards …

Weaknesses: Isn’t an explosive athlete and plays below the rim. Good creativity but finishing at the rim against length may be an obstacle at the next levels … Shooting definitely progressed his senior year but it’s still an area he can continue to improve. Can improve as a free throw shooter as well … Doesn’t score much from midrange, generally maneuvers to the rim even if the paint is congested. Can incorporate a pull-up jumper … Can be turnover prone with his ability/attempts to make tough plays with the ball …

Outlook: Forgoing college to play for the NBA G-League’s Pathway Program’s inaugural season … 2020 Grind Session MVP … Named to the 2019 Grind Session 1st Team …

Weaknesses: Isn’t an explosive athlete and plays below the rim. Good creativity but finishing at the rim against length may be an obstacle at the next levels … Shooting results can be hit and miss. He drops his jump shot on his shoulder a bit and his stance can be a bit staggered … Doesn’t score much from midrange, generally maneuvers to the rim even if the paint is congested. Can incorporate a pull-up jumper and expand overall scoring arsenal …

Outlook: UCLA commit … Named to the 2019 Grind Session 1st Team …
