NBA Comparison: Cameron Payne

Strengths: 6’2 left-handed combo guard … Solid length with a 6’5.5 wingspan … Can play on or off the ball … Quick to square up and release on shot. Can shoot from midrange and 3PT. Hits shots off the catch and dribble in the face up the defense. Creates using step backs and pull-ups with good footwork and can stop on a dime. Shoots well from NBA 3PT range. Can get hot and score in bunches … Good ball handler with an effective crossover and good use of hesitations. Avoids traps and can create a shot without over-dribbling … Covers a lot of ground on his drives and hits shots at various angles. Uses glass when appropriate … Scored the majority of his points in high school from creating against a set defense, didn’t get much ran for him and showed ability to score from scratch … Very quick … Good defender on and off the ball. Anticipates and has good hands. Comes up with a lot of steals and even blocks shots well for his position … Elevates and secures rebounds well for position … Plays hard and consistently gives good effort … High character, good student, and presents himself well off the court … Younger for class, turned 18 in August of his freshman year of college …

Weaknesses: Has room to get stronger … Very quick but isn’t incredibly explosive when comparing to elite prospects. Will throw down dunks on fast breaks but other than catching occasional back door alley oops, he generally finishes below the rim in the half-court. Finishing around the rim may be an obstacle at the next levels when the defensive length is greater and the floor shrinks. Tends to favor his left hand on drives … Can improve finding that balance of when to shoot and when to penetrate, also when to score vs facilitate … Makes nice passes and plays unselfish but isn’t incredibly advanced as far as making reads or an elite passer that would come from a pure point guard … Too aggressive at times on the defensive end. Picks up unnecessary fouls and found himself in foul trouble throughout the course of his high school career …

Outlook: Averaged 21 points, 6 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game for Reitz as a junior before reclassifying … MVP of the 2019 Underclassman All-American Game with 13 points …
