NBA Comparison: Caris Levert/Darius Miles

Strengths: Seabron is a lengthy, skilled guard who gets to the rim with long strides and a lethal first step … A crafty ball handler and finisher in the lane who showcases polished body control and uses his long legs and arms to his advantage when attacking the basket off the dribble … Potentially the best rebounding guard in the nation averaging over 10 rebounds per game through 12 games … Good ball-handler with an elite Euro-step and excellent transition decision-making … Quick first step and jab step that can send defenders the wrong way while he explodes past them … Creates a lot of space for himself and has the length and athleticism to take on taller defenders around the rim … Can play as a 6’7 primary ball-handler to create size mismatches against smaller guards … Elite acceleration as he can start a fast break off of a simple rebound … Elevates with a high vertical to create most of his rebounds and get the offense moving with pace … Opportunistic defender with long arms and a quick burst to jump passing lanes and pickpocket dribblers. Averaging nearly 2 steals per game … Seabron is simply a unique, lengthy athlete who has the potential to turn into a match-up nightmare with his unstoppable combination of size and twitchy athleticism … Despite shooting just 15% from three, his 70% free throw shooting offers a ray of hope about his ability to develop as a three point shooter …

Weaknesses: Outside shooting remains a work in progress and a major hole in his game… Struggles mightily as a three-point shooter at just 8-40 in two seasons so far at NC State … Court vision is just average for a slasher of his quality and his assist numbers show that at just 2.8 per game. He should be averaging more assists than this with how much he is used as the primary ball-handler and how effective he is at getting into the lane … Lanky frame that could mitigate his slashing prowess when taking on the most physical defenders at the next level … Can dribble out of control and lose his handle in transition, but that is to be expected with how fast he is able to run out in transition … Three-point shooting and strength are the two major criticisms of his game, but the RS Sophomore’s dramatic improvement this season is a great sign that he should be able to figure out his shooting stroke eventually … He has the confidence to take threes, as he has attempted one in every game this season except for one, he just needs to start making them with more consistency… Effectively the age of a junior having sat out a year having turned 21 in Mau

Notes: Redshirt Sophomore at NC State … Virginia High School 4A Player of the Year and State Champion at Lake Taylor High School … Averaged 22 points and 11 rebounds as a senior in high school … Currently averaging 19 points and 10 rebounds with the Wolfpack … 6’7, 190 pound guard with elite athleticism and speed …
