NBA Comparison: Kelly Oubre

Strengths: Elite defender who leads Arizona in steals per game … Picturesque frame for a NBA shooting guard at 6’6, 210 pounds … Has the ability to take over the PG role when Nico Mannion is not in the game with good ball-handling and excellent vision … Above average facilitator and three-point shooter … Sees the floor well and knows where to be for an extra pass and knockdown shot … Smart player who will pass up a three for a better shot for himself as he attempts to develop a better three-point shot … Great rebounder and outlet passer … Freakish 6’10 wingspan for a guard which contributes to his 1.6 steals per game and ability to guard multiple positions … Extremely athletic player who can play 3 or 4 different positions … Versatile player who can become a knockdown three-point shooter, pass-first point guard, or playmaking slasher depending on the team’s needs … Great composure and confidence on and off the court … Improved his free throw percentage from 59% to 78% since Under Armour Association in 2018 … Very high potential with all of the traits to be an elite NBA player

Weaknesses: Needs to become a more consistent jump shooter with only a 32% three-point percentage … Does a lot of things really well but has not developed to a great/elite level at any of these tasks … Impulsive defender that gets himself into foul trouble too often … Room to improve as a ball handler, tends to get past defenders with speed and athleticism rather than creating space off the dribble … Doesn’t attack to the left often or well enough … Sometimes plays a little too unselfish when he could make a larger impact … Can sometimes disappear into more of a role player rather than a star

Outlook: Considered a likely late lottery to mid first round pick … Looks to be an impactful role player early on in his career, which will give him good minutes … Won’t be a star right away but a year or two of development on a consistent jump shot will turn him from good to great … Pelicans would be a great fit to provide an immediate impact on defense with little to no pressure to put up a lot of points with the likes of Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram leading the way

Notes: Current Arizona Freshman … Averaging 12.7 PPG, 5 RPG, and 2.4 APG … 3rd leading scorer on the Wildcats … 1.6 SPG leads the team … Played at IMG Academy but was born in Australia

Derek Bast 2/3/20

Strengths: 6’6 scoring guard … Great length with a 6’10.25 wingspan and 8’7.5 standing reach … High-level athlete … Gets up and makes plays above the rim, especially strong going off one foot. Good body control … Can hit difficult layups in traffic … Quick in the open floor. Good in transition as a passer and finisher … Shoots well from outside with good arc and mechanics. Very good corner three-point shooter off the catch … Employs an effective floater … Good slashing ability … Finished fifth in scoring over the Under Armour Association with 20.3 points per game while shooting a third best 57.3% FG% in 2018 … Smooth. Light on his feet and good quickness … Defends well on and off the ball, giving consistent effort. Finished in the top five in steals over the Under Armour Association with 2.1 per game in 2018 … Solid ballhandler and has improved throughout high school. Projects to serve a secondary ballhandler at next levels … Changes direction well in the open floor … Solid feel. Alert and makes passes on the move… Drives and kicks to the open man … Spaces the floor. Can play on or off the ball … Good rebounder for position … Strong build … Unselfish, scores well but doesn’t force his impact and plays within himself …

Weaknesses: Favors driving to his right, and should look to become stronger using his left … Relies on his first step to beat the defense, doesn’t have a lot of creativity or elusiveness with his dribbling in the half-court … Good floater but can improve his midrange game … Generally, demonstrates his athleticism in the open floor but doesn’t implement it as much in the half-court where he tends to be more of a catch and shooter … Tends to look for threes or getting all the way to the rim and his midrange game still needs to be expanded … Pull up shooting needs work. Most of his threes come off the catch, must improve upon his shooting off the dribble … Averaged just 2.5 assists to 2.9 turnovers per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018, illustrating his need to improve upon his ball protection. Leaves his feet to make passes … Poor free throw shooter. Only shot 59.1% FT% over the Under Armour Association in 2018 … Good all-around but doesn’t have a specific area where he provides top shelf ability or separates himself …

Outlook: Incoming Arizona freshman … 2019 McDonald’s All-American … Played in the 2019 Nike Hoop Summit … Led IMG in scoring with 19 points to win the 2019 GEICO National Championship Game … Scored 11 points in the 2018 Nike Hoop Summit … Transferred from Hillcrest Prep to IMG Academy after his sophomore year …
