NBA Comparison: Lance Thomas/PJ Tucker

Strengths: Has good court awareness and patience … Eager to make the right play, doesn’t force it … Knows when to kick it out … Does a good job of using pump fakes to separate himself from defenders … Effective out of the triple-threat … Handles the ball pretty well … Rebounds well for being 6’6” (7.8 rebounds per game), knows how to bang inside and use his length to his advantage … Knows how to move without the ball … Coming off screens, etc.Improved foul shooter (78.2%) and three-point shooter (39.5%) … Not a dynamic scorer (12.9 points per game), but his shooting percentages are very encouraging … Possesses a pretty quick release on his shot … Really loves the corner three … Not afraid to take big shots … Was a good leader at Colorado … Good awareness on defense … Does a good job staying in front of his man … Has the length to bother wings and post players … Really improved his shot blocking from 0.2 blocks per game as a junior to 0.7 blocks per game as a senior.

Weaknesses: Classic tweener … A bit too small for the power forward spot and it’s unclear if he’s got the burst to play out on the wing … Not as effective in transition as he would like to be … Not a super explosive athlete … While his shooting has improved, it still needs more work … Needs to be automatic when left open … Will need to prove he can shoot with NBA defenders in his face … Decent scorer in college, but didn’t put up huge numbers … It’s unclear how much he’ll be able to score in the NBA … Will need to show he can be effective at other things … Rebounding is definitely his strong suit, but it’s hard to make a living as a guard whose primary strength is rebounding … Will need to show he can play down on the block as a forward … Born in 1994, he turned 24 in January making him one of the oldest players available for this year’s draft …
