NBA Comparison: Nigel Williams-Goss

Strengths: 6’3 point guard … Solid length for position with a 6’7 wingspan and ;8’1.5 standing reach … Isn’t afraid to play physical … Shoots well from 3PT range, off the catch or dribble. Shot 40.9% 3PT% on 4 attempts per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 and 41.4% 3PT% on 4.1 attempts per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Shot a solid 76.5% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2019 and 75% FT% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Natural floor general and controls the pace of the game. Good patience and plays under control when pressured. Good ball handler and passing ability. Solid pick and roll ball handler and decision maker. Sells crossover well. Averaged 4.9 assists to 2.9 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 and 4.6 assists (2nd most in camp) to 1.1 turnovers per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Doesn’t hesitate to use his left hand as a ball handler, passer, or finisher … Positions himself well defensively and sticks to his man when on the ball. Active hands and disrupts passes. Finished 8th with 2.2 steals per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Younger for his class, turned 18 in July after high school graduation …

Weaknesses: Isn’t incredibly quick or explosive, generally finishes below the rim in the half court. Has defended well in high school but lack of quickness may hinder him moving forward …  Can improve scoring efficiency and finishing at the rim. Shot 40.9% FG% over the Nike EYBL in 2019 and 41% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019. Selective scorer but doesn’t show much variety, generally takes what the defense gives. Creating his own shot at the next levels may be an obstacle and scoring opportunities will likely diminish … Doesn’t stand out as a rebounder for position … Can work on limiting turnovers, averaged 2.9 per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 …

Outlook: Kentucky freshman … Named to the 2020 Jordan Brand Classic …
