NBA Comparison: Blake Stepp

Strengths: 6-7 wing with a long wingspan 7-1, with tremendous ball handling and good feel for the game … Composed game … Can easily create offensive plays after dribbling, play with intensity and very aggressive in 5 x 5 situations, is developing cutting and shooting in his offensive arsenal, great in transition always looking for the easy basket … Patient with the ball, looking for the best offensive option … Smart. Committed to the game plan … Very active in offensive rebounds, generating new opportunities for his team … Good mentality and attitude, mature and not afraid of taking on responsibility … Comes up with good minutes in important international tournaments with his team … Defensively interested, he has good recovery and tries to occupy spaces well, creating difficulty for the attack, he is always present in the defensive rebound …

Weaknesses: He is not a very fast or athletic player … Struggles to contain faster opposing wings … Even though he has a good shooting mechanism, he is still inconsistent, his high % in 2 pt is due to the fact that he attacks the rim and finishes close to it … Against bigger and more athletic opponents, he will not have this facility, to go up to the next level he must adjust mid-range and long-range shooting … Position adjustment in the NBA won’t be easy … He doesn’t have the physical strength to play SF and he doesn’t have the mobility of an SG … He need to work on the physique and needs to make better decisions about when to pass the ball and when to shoot …

Notes: From Brasilia, Brazil … Considered a possible 2nd round pick for the 2022 NBA draft … Game is in the mold of a Joe Ingles if his shot continues to develop …
