NBA Comparison: Evan Fournier

Strengths: 6’6 scoring guard … Good size and length for position … Good form on jump shot with no wasted motion. Shoots well from midrange and 3PT. Shoots well off the catch or pulling up off the dribble. Shot 37.1% 3PT% on 5.8 attempts per game at the U16 Americas Championship in 2019 … Good touch on runner/floater and midrange scoring ability … Good free throw shooter. Shot 88.9% FT% over the Under Armour Association and 80% FT% at the U16 Americas Championship in 2019 … Unselfish and patient. Doesn’t force his scoring or overcomplicate the game … Moves well off the ball … Shows some ability to post up and uses size advantage … Averaged 13.1 points per game over the Under Armour Association and 9.5 points per game at the U16 Americas Championship in 2019 … Good rebounder for position … Light on his feet … Good shot blocker for position. Averaged 1.2 blocks per game at the U16 Americas Championship in 2019 …

Weaknesses: Has much room to improve strength in both upper and lower body … Isn’t real explosive … With scoring as being his point of intrigue as a prospect, he can still expand his offensive game. Can work on getting to the rim more and doesn’t show much slashing ability, tends to settle for contested midrange pull-ups at times. Doesn’t show much creativity with the ball or ability to break down the defense off the dribble … Unfortunately, he didn’t get a chance to show improvement with 2020 summer grassroot events cancelled but he didn’t shoot efficient in 2019 at 36.3% FG% over the Under Armour Association and 37.5% FG% at the U16 Americas Championship … Unselfish and solid moving the ball but doesn’t show advanced playmaking ability. Averaged 1.6 assists to 4.5 turnovers per game over the Under Armour Association in 2019 …

Outlook: Michigan State freshman … 2021 Illinois Gatorade Player of the Year … Won Gold at the U16 Americas Championship in 2019 …
