NBA Comparison: Shaun Livingston

Strengths: 6’8 point forward … Great size and length for position with a 6’10.5 wingspan … Very good athlete and well-coordinated. Finishes above the rim with ease. Good speed and gets to the rim to finish with either hand. Slashes off the dribble and gets to the rim fairly easily. Thrives in transition as a leader and finisher … Good instincts and IQ. Good ball handler and very good passer. Great court vision and unlike most players his age, he displays it well in the half-court. Makes lead passes to cutters and crosscourt passes to open shooters. Draws the defense and finds the open man. Finished 8th over the Nike EYBL with 5.8 assists per game in 2019 … Good scoring ability. Averaged 17.2 points per game at 49.1% FG% over the Nike EYBL in 2019. Finished 7th in scoring at the NBPA Top 100 with 14.4 points per game in 2019 … Good rebounder and instantly starts the offense after grabbing boards. Finished 7th over the Nike EYBL with 9.2 rebounds per game in 2019. Finished 2nd at the NBPA Top 100 in rebounding with 8.4 per game in 2019 … Versatile defender and can switch onto different positions. Averaged 1.4 steals per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019. Averaged 1.2 steals per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Good shot blocker for position and rotates well as a help defender. Averaged 1.2 blocks per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Strong frame …

Weaknesses: Must improve as a shooter, which would add to an already effective scorer. Defense tends to sag off him and he passes up open looks. Shoots on the way down and a lot of his misses fall short. Shot 20% 3PT% over the Nike EYBL in 2019. Shot 25% 3PT% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Needs to improve as a free throw shooter as well. Shot 63.5% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Although he has no issue putting points on the board, he can develop more of a scoring mentality and putting up points when his team needs him to score … Despite playmaking ability, he can work on limiting the turnovers. Finished 5th over the Nike EYBL with 3.6 turnovers per game in 2019 …

Outlook: Transferring to IMG Academy for his senior year … 2019 All-EYBL: First Team … 2019 Wisconsin Gatorade Player of the Year …
