NBA Comparison: Justin Anderson

Strengths: 6’6 athletic wing … Solid length with a 6’8.5 wingspan and 8’4.5 standing reach … Powerful build. Good strength in both upper and lower body. Plays physical and finishes through contact … Good slasher. High-level and explosive athlete. Effortless leaping ability and reliable finisher, especially in transition. Good body control. Soft touch inside with either hand … Doesn’t force his scoring. Averaged 17.7 points per game at 54% FG% over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Unselfish and a solid passer. Averaged 4.3 assists to 2 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Good versatility and effort as a defender. Sticks to his man when defending on the ball. Moves quick laterally and consistently gets into a defensive stance, also does a good job switching. Averaged 1.6 steals per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Averaged 1.6 steals per game at the U17 World Cup in 2018 … Good shot blocker for a wing, uses timing and vertical. Averaged 1.3 blocks per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Good rebounder on both ends especially for a wing. Uses elevation to secure boards. Averaged 8.9 rebounds (3.3 offensive) per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 …

Weaknesses: Shooting can improve. Can elevate his arm more on his release, kind of pushes the ball. Shot 30.6% 3PT% over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Shot 25% (1-4) 3PT% at the U17 World Cup in 2018 … Shot 64% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Shot 53.8% FT% at the U17 World Cup in 2018 … Can improve as a ball handler and creator. Doesn’t beat the defense with his dribble, most of his success as a slasher is due to his athleticism. Can expand and improve his half-court offense, scores a lot of his points in transition. Doesn’t have much of a midrange offensive game …

Outlook: Auburn freshman … Played in the 2019 Nike Hoop Summit … Won Gold at the U17 World Cup in 2018 … Played in the 2017 Underclassman All-American Game …
