NBA Comparison: Kirk Snyder

Strengths: Has good size for an NBA wing (6’6”, 210 pounds) and has solid quickness as well ... He passes the eye test ... Pretty explosive to the rim ... Able to finish through contact and make tough shots inside ... Finishes well with both hands ... Shoots with his right hand, but can go left ... Handles the ball well with a nice crossover dribble ... Capable of bringing the ball up the floor ... Does a good job of moving without the ball ... Does a solid job of staying in front of his man and hedging screens ... Recovers well ... Pretty versatile defender, able to guard positions 1-3 ... Alert on both ends of the floor ... Unselfish ... Eager to make the right basketball play (e.g. Drive & kick) ... Has good court vision ... Smart player ... Potential to be a player that contributes in multiple ways (had 12 points, 9 rebounds, & 5 assists against Duke) ... Does a good job of getting to the line (79.5% on 5.6 attempts) ... Pretty fluid shooting motion ... Shows the motivation to improve his game (12.9 points per game as a freshman; 17.9 points per game as a junior) ... Overall a pretty polished player. Not considered a project ... Should be able to contribute to some extent at the next level right away ... Team concept ...

Weaknesses: Will be 22 in August, so lacks the upside of many of the other draft prospects ... Needs to improve his ball security (3.1 assists & 4.0 turnovers per game) ... Sometimes makes careless passes ... At times can be a bit too unselfish when his team needs him to attack more (10 pts in the first half against Duke; 2 pts in the second half) ... Has the ability to go off (29 pts at Miami) ... It would be nice to see him do that with a bit more regularity ... Needs to improve his ability to finish over length ... Could do a better job of defending without fouling (2.9 fouls per game) ... Struggled mightily in Yale's biggest game of the season shooting a dreadful 2-16 for five points in the NCAA tournament versus LSU ... So there will be some that question his ability to step up to the limelight and perform well in big games ...

Overall: Miye Oni is a legitimate NBA talent ... The junior from Northridge, CA has declared for the 2019 NBA draft and is considered a likely 2nd round pick ... He has the size and athleticism to hang with NBA wings and is a very smart, cerebral player ... While he doesn’t look likely to be an elite player in the NBA, he has the tools to be a solid role player and be a real asset to a playoff caliber team ...
