NBA Comparison: Shabazz Napier

Strengths: A confident, high volume scorer and tough shot-maker … Frustrates the defense with his ability to score in a variety of ways … Attacks the rim and drills step-back jumpers … Adept ability to create shots off the dribble … His solid athleticism and ability to be in the right spots attributes to his explosive scoring outputs … Has a knack for rebounding that will translate well in the NBA, averaged 7.5 rebounds this season … Better than average on-ball defender, moves his feet well to stay in front of his opponents … His quick crossover tends to catch defenders off guard … Clutch free throw shooter, with decent career numbers (80% as a sophomore, 76% as a junior) …

Weaknesses: At times, he makes questionable decisions, specifically when it comes to shot selection Being the only go-to guy on Boston College has resulted in wild shots … Tends to have lapses defensively … Must improve his off-ball defense …  At 6’1’’, he may be too undersized to run the point in the NBA … Needs to improve as a playmaker, which will likely happen once he has more shooters surrounding him at the next level … Turned the ball over 2.9 times per game as a junior, needs to value the ball better … Had a worse assist-to-turnover ratio this season than as a sophomore …

Outlook: Although there are concerns if Bowman can effectively run a team at the point in the NBA, he is a talented prospect that can provide scoring in bunches … Likely to be selected in the early to mid second round of the 2019 Draft …

Notes: Was a highly sought-after football defensive back and wide receiver in highschool and verbally committed to North Carolina … Ultimately decided to play college basketball and decommitted from UNC … Aside from Boston College, he drew interest from Cincinnati, Buffalo and California … Poured in a career high 44 points against Hartford on December 31st …
