NBA Comparison: Monta Ellis

Strengths: 6’4 scoring guard … Good length … Quick step with the ball, changes speed and direction well. Shifty and advanced ball-handler, breaks down defenders well. Creates offense for himself using an array of dribble to go into his shot. Scores well from midrange with an accurate floater and ability to stop on a dime to go into his pull-up. Always squared up and ready to shoot, doesn’t waste motion in shot, and shoots well on the move. Perfect arc on shot with his makes hitting the bottom of the net, quick release, and needs little separation from the defender to get a clean shot off … Hits contested shots at the rim using either hand with good body control. Maneuvers in tight spaces with the ball and successfully attacks gaps very well … Highly efficient scorer from the floor, as well as 3PT range at a high volume, and a very reliable free throw shooter. Averaged 18.6 points per game on 49.8% FG% over the Nike EYBL and 18.2 points per game on 50% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2023. Shot 42.6% 3PT% on 6.8 3PT attempts per game over the Nike EYBL and 40% on 5 3PT attempts per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2023. Shot 84.2% FT% over the Nike EYBL in and 91.3% (21-23) FT% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2023 … Constantly moves off the ball … Light on his feet, moves well laterally, and stays in front of the ball-handler defending on the perimeter … Confident. Not afraid to take big shots and doesn’t second guess himself …

Weaknesses: Has much room to get stronger … Isn’t an incredibly explosive athlete and generally finishes below the rim. May struggle scoring at the rim at the next levels … Provides a score-first approach and will need to impact the game more outside of scoring moving forward. Keeps turnovers low but can improve as a playmaker, especially if he’s going to be a combo guard at the next levels. Averaged 1.9 assists to 1.2 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL and 2.4 assists to 2 turnovers per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2023 …

Outlook: Miami commit … Had a huge summer going into his senior year and one of the highest risers in the 2024 high school class …
