NBA Comparison: Sleepy Floyd

Strengths: Bouyea dramatically improved as a three-point shooter in his fifth year at San Francisco and it is improving his draft stock nearly halfway through his final season … He is best offensively at creating space for himself and getting to the basket with his long strides and tight handles … Really good offensive footwork and deceptive first step that can allow him to fake defenders out and attack the other way … His change of speeds and crossovers on the drive are lethal and often get him exactly where he needs to be attacking the basket … Great body control in the air which allows him to finish around big men in the paint … Solid overall speed to create separation and a quick burst off the dribble … Good cutter off the ball … Rebounds well for his size and position with over five per game … Truly defines what limitless range means as he is comfortable taking threes from NBA distance whether he is stepping into them or stepping back off the dribble … Comfortable shooting off the bounce and as a spot up guy on the wing … Has improved his shooting percentages at all three splits each season in each category … Should be one of the most NBA ready players coming out of college given his experience and consistent development each year … Defensive pickpocket that makes up for his lack of size and strength on the defensive end … Microwave scorer who can put up a lot of points in a short amount of time when he gets into a rhythm … A true point guard who can pass and create scoring opportunities for teammates, but is asked to score more often due to his talent level and role within the team …

Weaknesses: Doesn’t get to the line as much as he should for a guard who primarily looks to get to the basket … Lacks elite athleticism and explosiveness for a smaller guard. Dunks are rare unless it is on a one-man fastbreak showing his lack of elite leaping ability … Doesn’t have elite size at only 6’2 and could struggle on the defensive end at the next level … This lack of size is also concerning considering he is a guard who looks to score before he looks to pass … Needs to improve as a playmaker and passer if he wants meaningful minutes as a role player point guard … Doesn’t get a lot of elevation taking his jumpers … Almost all of his three-pointers come with both feet still on the ground and a small jump off the ground … Lengthier defenders at the next level could easily contest and alter his shots if he doesn’t have considerable space to release his shots … Hasn’t played against elite competition for his entire career. Struggled against the powerhouses of the WCC (2-13 from 3PT in 5 games against Gonzaga the last two years) … Will be 23 years old when he first steps onto an NBA floor … A/TO efficiency has fallen off from last season. He is shooting better, but his 3.8/2.4 efficiency from a season ago has dropped to 3.6/3.0 this year …

Outlook: Bouyea has an old school style of game and should benefit from the success of another older senior drafted last year Chris Duarte out of Oregon. While a completely different type of player, Duarte’s success as a mid first rounder helps all players entering the NBA at over 22 years of age. Bouyea, born in June of 1999, will be 23 two days before the 2022 NBA Draft … He has improved considerably from last season and is certainly a guy that benefits from the NCAA ruling allowing players a 5th year of eligibility due to COVID-19 … Figures to be a high level back up point guard at the next level with a chance to develop into a starter …

Notes: 2020-21 All-WCC First Team … Led high school team to Division IV State Championship as a junior … First player in 18 seasons to repeat as The Monterey Herald All-County Player of the Year … Accepted only D-1 College Offer at San Francisco … 5th year starter for the Dons … Measured: 6’0.0” barefoot, 6’1.75” in shoes, 8’1.0” standing reach, 170.4 lbs, 6’7.0” wingspan at the 2022 NBA G-League Elite Camp …
