NBA Comparison: KJ McDaniels/Joey Graham

Strengths: Has NBA athleticism with a strong, muscular frame and explosive leaping ability …  Defense is the greatest strength to his game … An excellent defender with shut down potential … Possesses good size at the wing position with a 6-foot-8 frame and solid length … 4 years of college experience … A mature, focused player who competes hard … Uses his strength well to muscle opponents and create scoring opportunities … Explosive athlete capable of highlight finishes over defenders … Aggressive offensive rebounder … Hits the boards hard and scores a lot of garbage buckets through desire … Very good in the open floor as he utilizes his above average athleticism and body control well on the break … Shot 45% from 3 as a junior (on over 3 attempts per game), but really struggled to get on track in Senior year shooting just over 25% … Free throw shooting and overall shooting showed steady and significant improvement up until senior year …

Weaknesses: Lacks a great offensive repertoire … Struggles to create offense in the half court … Not a very good ISO player as he lacks great ball handling and ability to pull up off the dribble … Not much of a playmaker for others as he lacks vision and passing skills … Jump shooting remains a real weakness to his game … His inability to make outside shots consistently allows opponents to sag off him and play him for the drive, making it difficult for him to get by defenders … Mechanics on his jumpshot are not fluid and lack consistency … His shot lacks great arch, the release point is too low and he doesn’t get enough elevation … His shooting form breaks down against quality defenders or when he attempts shots out beyond 3 point range … After a very strong junior year shooting from behind the arch, he has struggled mightily as a Senior … After a redshirt year, lack of upside at 22 years of age decreases his appeal …

Notes: From Alpharetta, Georgia … Considered a borderline top 100 recruit according to recruiting outlets … A Pre-Business major … Declared for the 2016 draft and went through the predraft process but withdrew his name and returned for his senior season at Clemson … Measured 6′ 6.25” barefoot, 6′ 7.25” in shoes, 213.6 lbs, 6′ 10” wingspan and a 8′ 6” standing reach at the 2016 NBA Draft Combine …
