NBA Comparison:

Strengths: English is an intelligent, 6’5 off-guard who has dramatically improved upon his core strengths as a senior … One of Kim’s most under-valued strengths is his recognition of open space … His awareness off the ball allows him to occupy the spot on the perimeter that provides him with maximum room and minimal contest in catch and release situations …As a shooter, English consistently shot around a respectable 37% from downtown over his first three years, but went up to a scorching 45% as a senior … Off the dribble (Few dribbles the better), English is capable of launching off the bounce, and has the ability to make defenders pay for going under on-ball perimeter screens … Though not an adept shot-creator, he finds ways to elude defenders and finish when attacking the rim north/south … Defensively he plays with concentration and intensity, which is all you can ask from someone who lacks strength and explosive athleticism …

Weaknesses: Physically, English has a skinny frame and underwhelming strength/explosiveness for a shooting guard … Lacks the length that helps shooting 2s get cleans looks while being defended … Not much of a shot-creator … When putting the ball on the floor, English is athletic enough to take it north/south to the rim, but isn’t shifty enough off the dribble to his shake his defender east/west … Can’t separate off the dribble, making him a one-dimensional offensive threat as a spot-up shooter … He could have trouble guarding stronger 2s like Iguadala or Joe Johnson, though he only really projects as an 8th man or so anyway … Low ceiling prospect…

Overall: Kim’s role at the next level will likely be as a specialist, but one that several teams could use when you consider the impact of a reliable three-point threat … He still needs to put on bulk so he can body up with stronger 2-guards, but with a high basketball IQ and appealing complimentary features, English should land a job from a team looking to support its ball-dominant scorers … If teams are looking at English, they’re not focused on his deficiencies as much as they are focused on maximizing his strengths …
