NBA Comparison: Kevin Martin/Khris Middleton

Strengths: Excellent size for a wing at 6’8 and with a 6’11 wingspan … Above average athlete, finishes above the rim with ease and covers a lot of ground on drives … Good motor, consistently runs the floor … Excellent offensive polish for a player his age … Can score from anywhere on the court with range that extends to the 3PT line … Shows the ability to pull up off the dribble effectively as well as be a spot up shooter … Unselfish player. Very willing passer … Late bloomer who was not highly rated until his senior year of high school … Solid ball handler showing the ability to attack the rim off the dribble from the perimeter … Mature and focused individual …

Weaknesses: Has room to get stronger but has a frame that should fill out well … Can be too quick with the trigger and shot selection can improve … Can be a bit out of control on layups, sometimes jumping from too far out. Picks up charges … Lacks technique offensively and as a finisher when he doesn’t dunk … Shot has improved over the past season, but may still need some minor tweaks … His shot starts on the left side of his body and his shoulders aren’t always squared to the basket when he shoots … Struggles moving laterally and changing directions when guarding quicker wings … Not the fastest player in the open floor, but not slow either …

Notes: Native of Boca Raton, FL. His family hails from Jamaica  … Memphis freshman who committed August 8, 2020  … Measured a 28.5 no step vertical and a 38.5 maximum vertical at the 2021 preseason Memphis pro day … Performed well at the 2021 Allen Iverson Classic … Considered a 4-star recruit. Following his senior year, ranked 32nd by Rivals, 38th by 247Sports.com, and 70th by ESPN in the nation… Projected as a lottery pick entering freshman season by NBADraft.net (10th overall) … Averaged 23.1 points and 8.3 rebounds per game as a senior St. Andrew’s School in Boca Raton, FL …
