NBA Comparison: Wayne Ellington

Strengths: Shooting guard who can flat out shoot the long ball … Shows some combo ability … Able to spot up or shoot off the dribble comfortably … Strong ball handler who can create for himself and others … An exceptional passer at the 2 spot … Solid finisher around the rim … Can finish with either hand … Demonstrates a variety of different moves offensively … 6’6.75 wingspan … Overall a solid perimeter defender … Not afraid of the moment and taking the big shot … Turned 20 a day before the 2019 NBA draft …

Weaknesses: needs to add core strength in order to contend with 2-guards at the next level … Has to take better care of the basketball and be more consistent limiting turnovers … Does not necessarily jump out of the gym compared to more athletic guards so shooting has to remain consistent … Nonchalant at times … Can improve on playmaking ability …

Notes: National champion in high school … measured 6’5.5 in shoes, 6’3.5 barefoot and had a 8’3.5 standing reach at the 2019 NBA Combine … A bit of a surprise pick by the Warriors at number 28 on draft night … His overall game fits right into today’s NBA …

David Green 6/24/19

Strengths: Small 2-guard with excellent shooting ability … One of the top overall shooters in the draft … Talented scorer with his outside shooting ability … SHows solid ball handling ability, can create shots on the perimeter … Showed some combo ability … 6’6.75 wingspan is decent for a shooter … Solid defender … Unlimited range on his shot … Can come off screens or pull up … Has the guts to take big shots … Developed a lot of confidnece out of his coach … Turned 20 a day before the 2019 NBA Draft, so youth is on his side …

Weaknesses: There are still some question marks about his maturity … A little wild emotionally. But could be in the perfect system to fall in line … Lacks an NBA body. Needs to work hard on adding core strength and muscle to his frame … Careless with the ball … Just average athletcicm at the shooting guard position … Doesn;t always show focus. Can be lackadasical at times … Not a natrually strong athlete …

Notes: Won a national title with LaLumiere in high school … Measured: Measured 6′ 3.5” barefoot, 6′ 5.5” in shoes, 190.8 lbs, 6′ 6.75” wingspan, and a 8′ 3.5” standing reach at the 2019 NBA Draft Combine … A suprise pick by the Warriors at 28 on draft night …
