NBA Comparison: Christian Watford

Strengths: A player with good physical tools, tall, good wingspan, good hands, runs the court well for a guy his size … A pure shooter,  extremely adept at facing the basket to shoot … Very good shot mechanics … Can put the ball on the floor to beat taller defenders off the dribble … Possesses good fundamentals … Not a quick player,  but can get out and run in fast break situations … Solid versatilly,  his position is generally as a PF, but can play SF in certain situations to take advance of his size and his ability to dribble … A decent defender … Has good experience with Brazilian national teams …

Weaknesses: Too slow to play SF position, and needs to work on his body a lot in order to play PF … Does not have a post game and doesn’t like contact, a perimeter player, and not a good defender … Need to get much stronger … Lucas is just an average athlete … Needs to learn how to use his size to take advantage against smaller players around the basket … Concerns exist about his attitude …

Notes: Early entrant into the 2015 NBA Draft … One of the most well known prospects of his age coming from Brazil, Lucas has been on the radar for years, playing for Under 16 and 18 Brazilian National teams … Was the 2012 Jordan Brand Classic International Game MVP, totaling 18 points, 12 rebounds and 4 blocks …
