NBA Comparison: Jordan McRae

Strengths: Wiry, athletic wing with good fluidity and experience … Excellent at finishing plays on the break … He’s great at scoring at off motion plays … He’s adequate at scoring when forced to create his own shot … He’s great at generating free throws … He averaged over 8 attempts per game last season … He’s shown the ability to make plays for his teammates when they’re open … He’s good at getting on the boards and bringing down rebounds … He averaged 7.5 rebounds last season … He’s shown solid ability to guard his man and has displayed good IQ on the defensive end of the floor … He’s a good athlete … His scoring increased every year that he’s been in college … He’s a good player coming off the pick and roll …

Weaknesses: He needs to work on his shooting ability … Form lacks great fluisity and an ideal motion … He only shot 30% from the three point line last season … For his college career, he only shot 33%, which was bolstered by an outlier year where he hit over 40% of his shots … He needs to be more careful with the basketball … He averaged 4.2 turnovers per game last season, whch if he doesn’t improve will gift wrap points to other teams in the NBA …  At times he struggles to score in traffic … His shot selection needs work … As evidenced by his 40 percent shooting from the field last season … He has limited experience playing against top competition … He needs to put on more weight, he’s only at 185 right now …

Outlook: After being drafted by the Sacramento Kings, James is going go try and make his way into the rotation. With his ability to score, he should be able to carve a spot into the rotation. Although he will need to work on his shooting ability in order to make defenses pay. He will also need to work on his shot IQ in order to make the best of his possessions …
