NBA Comparison: James Harden/Wilson Chandler

Strengths: Big time athlete with elite level speed and athleticism … Shows the ability to score in a variety of ways, with spot up shooting as well as scoring off the dribble … Can finish at the rim with highlight dunks, and does a good job of utilizing his great body strength to absorb contact … Very dangerous in the open floor with his speed and leaping ability … Tremendous basketball body with solid wingspan and great body strength considering his age … One of those rare kids that had an NBA ready body coming out of high school … Lefty shooter with nice touch … Has knocked down the college 3 ball at a good clip and with steady volume (39% with 1.4 makes per game) … Excellent on ball defender showing great lateral speed and awareness as well as a high effort level. Even blocks some shots, making use of his great quickness and timing … Has done a solid job of avoiding turnovers and making solid decisions with the ball, as evidenced by his positive a/to ratio … Comfortable handling the ball on the break … Has exhibited a nice ability to create off the dribble from the perimeter and get to the rim and finish … Also has good body control and touch on the move. His ability to convert plays while operating at such a high rate of speed is very intriguing … Smart kid and considered a high character individual …

Weaknesses: Throughout his high school and AAU career he flashed tremendous talent but struggled to sustain a high level of consistency … Can lose focus at times during games, but has been a lot more consistent and prepared then expected … He needs to continue to show a high level of aggression and intensity in order to realize his immense talent … Shot shows high potential but still has some minor kinks in his mechanics that need to be ironed out in order to add range and consistency … Should look to improve upon his current 62% FT shooting …

Notes: Measured 6’6, 229.1 lbs, with a 6’10 wingspan and 8’7 reach at the 2014 USA U18 tryouts … McDonald’s and Jordan Brand All American … Helped Team USA win the 2014 Hoop Summit … Has really matured in his one year in college and appears to be a one and done, top 5-10 prospect …
