NBA Comparison: Wade Baldwin

Strengths: Combo guard with solid athleticism and ISO scoring ability ... Handles the ball well for a shooting guard; capable of bringing it up the floor like a point guard ... Knows how to move without the ball. Use screens to free himself up ... Pretty alert on defense ... Knows where to be ... Does a good job forcing turnovers (1.3 steals per game) ... Confident shooter (16.2 points per game on 44.0% from 3-point range) ... Capable of hitting tough shots ... Good shooting motion ... Very athletic ... Can throw it down easily and excels on the break ... Very dangerous in the open floor ... Knows how to get to the rim and finish ... Creative and crafty finisher ... Rebounds well for a guard ... Has a good nose for the ball ... Plays with a lot of energy ... Has a solid motor ...

Weaknesses: He’s undersized for a shooting guard at 6’4”, 200 pounds ... Will need to prove he can overcome his lack of size in the NBA ... His ability to make tough shots is a double edged sword ... Sometimes he’ll take shots that are a bit forced ... Needs to improve his shot selection ... Ball security needs to improve (2.9 turnovers per game) ... Averaged a modest 3.1 assists per game ... He would boost his stock if he could become a better facilitator and play some point guard ... Free throw shooting is good, but he regressed from his freshman year (80.0%) to sophomore year (77.9%) ... It would be nice if he could get back in the 80% territory ...

Overall: Jaylen Nowell is a talented player who can score in a variety of ways ... He’s not afraid of the moment and is willing to step up under pressure ... He’s also a pretty solid defender and has the athleticism to play in the NBA ... The big concern with him is he’s a bit undersized and doesn’t have point guard skills ... If he can overcome his size and prove he can expand his game to play a little bit of point guard, he has the potential to find a permanent home in the NBA ...

Notes: Measured: 6' 3.25'' barefoot, 6' 4.25'' in shoes, 202.4 lbs, 6' 7.25'' wingspan, 8' 2'' standing reach at the 2019 NBA Draft Combine ...
