NBA Comparison: DeMarre Carroll

Strengths: 6’6 two-way athletic forward … Good length with a 7’1 wingspan and 8’9 standing reach … Good strength and build ... Plays through contact … Aggressive mindset but doesn’t force his offense … Good athleticism and motor ... Runs the floor and finishes well in transition ... Explodes quickly off the ground for rebounds, blocking shots, and finishing plays above the rim ... Good body control and good finisher in the paint. Contorts his body to make difficult layups ... Can finish with his left hand ... Crashes glass and reads tip slam opportunities well ... Quick second jump … Spaces the floor well … Unselfish and solid passer … Shoots a high percentage within range ... Shot 46.9% from the floor over the adidas Gauntlet and 56.8% at the NBPA Top 100 … Versatile skillset ... Can score inside and out ... Recognizes mismatches and post ups smaller defenders … Much improved as a jump shooter with good mechanics … Gets to the free throw line at a good rate ... Shot 5.1 free throws per game over the adidas Gauntlet … Good tools and versatility as a defender ... Can defend in space and seems to take pride in tough defensive assignments ... Quick feet ... Good shot blocker for a wing with 1.2 per game over the adidas Gauntlet ... Good hands, instincts, and anticipation defensively, pokes the ball loose when defending on the ball ... Averaged 1.6 steals per game over the adidas Gauntlet …

Weaknesses: Only shot 28.6% from three over the adidas Gauntlet but has improved his outside shooting over the past year … Still has room to expand his half court offensive game and still trying to find consistent ways to score … Ballhandling can improve ... Doesn’t break down the defense or create much off the dribble … Doesn’t score much from midrange, most of his points come from threes or strong takes at the rim … Has room to cut down on turnovers, averaged 2.6 per game over the adidas Gauntlet … Should look to improve upon passing ability ... Spaces the floor well but can be more active off the ball …

Outlook: North Carolina commit … MVP of the McDonald’s All-American Game with 28 points (12-17) and five rebounds in 21 minutes … MVP of the Jordan Brand Classic with 24 points and six rebounds … Averaged 17.6 points and 7.5 rebounds per game over the adidas Gauntlet …
