NBA Comparison: Peter Jok

Strengths: Very good 3-point shooter at 38.1% career ... Good free throw shooter at 87.8% his senior season ... Efficient scorer and smart shooter at 49.6% his senior year ... Can shoot the ball off the dribble ... Has the size to compete with NBA twos and threes ... 7-foot wingspan on a wing player has a tendency to perk up the ears of scouts ... Decent rebounder, but is not in the post very often ... Good touch around the rim ... Disciplined player on both sides of the court ... Moves without the ball very well… Can score the basketball consistently from the outside ... Has a nose for scoring and does so in a fairly efficent manner ...

Weaknesses: As an older player, not much upside. He will turn 25 in July, making him a long shot as an NBA prospect … Has only been a primary scorer for one year in college and was not relied on to be more than a role player in his three years at Virginia … Not the most fluid of athletes, a little rigid in his movements ... Lacks NBA-level speeed and explosiveness… When driving to the hoop sometimes puts on the blinders even when the drive is not there ... Does not look to pass very often ... Lacks quickness on the defensive end against quicker players ... May not be able to get the rim in the NBA like he could in college ...

Outlook:
After spending three years at Virginia, Marial Shayok decided to transfer to Iowa State to prove that he could be a primary scorer. This worked out well for him as he averaged 18.7 points per game and earned first-team all-Big 12 honors and All-American honorable mention. He has also boosted him draft stock with his senior season and is now considered a late second-round possibility. He does not have much upside, but he is a bigger guard who can shoot lights out from anywhere on the floor. His shooting will space the floor well in the NBA, but he will need to get quicker and improve his defense and rebounding if he wants his NBA career to last.

Notes: Measured 6' 4.5'' barefoot, 6' 5.5'' in shoes, 196.8 lbs, 7' 0.25''wingspan, and a 8' 7.5'' standing reach at the 2019 NBA Draft Combine ... Born July 26, 1995 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada… Went to Blair Academy in New Jersey… Played three seasons at the University of Virginia, averaged 5.7 PPG (8.9 in his junior season) in 16.7 minutes… Transferred to Iowa State for his senior season because he wanted to be a primary scorer, sat out the 2017-2018 season… Averaged 18.7 PPG and 4.9 rebounds in 32.9 minutes… Named first team all-Big 12 his senior season…
