NBA Comparison: Derrick White

Strengths: 6’3 point guard … Creative style of play with good footwork and change of speed. Good ball handler, creates offense for himself and teammates. Good ambidexterity, drives and makes one-handed passes with his left or right hand … Averaged 14.1 points per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018. Led the U16 European Championship A in scoring with 19.9 points per game in 2017 … Shoots well off the catch, dribble, or step back. Good midrange scorer. Shoots well from three and has range out to the NBA 3PT line. Shot 38.1% 3P% on 5.3 attempts per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018. Shot 35% 3P% on 5.7 attempts per game at the U16 European Championship A in 2017 … Reliable free throw shooter. Shot a fourth best 86.2% FT% over the Under Armour Association in 2018. Shot 78.4% FT% at the U16 European Championship A in 2017 … Leads in transition and in the half-court. Plays under control, good balance of playing aggressive without forcing his impact. Also, knows when to score and when to distribute, with ability to run the point and play off the ball. Good passing and court vision. Finished second in assists with six per game over the Under Armour Association and the second best assist/turnover with 2.8 in the league in 2018. Finished sixth in assists with four per game at the U16 European Championship A in 2017 … Competes on the defensive end. Averaged 1.5 steals per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018. Led the U16 European Championship A with three steals per game in 2017 ... Draws fouls at a good rate … Unselfish. Leader on the floor, plays with competitiveness and passion …

Weaknesses: Doesn’t have great size and length with a 6’2.5 wingspan and 8’1.5 standing reach … Smooth athlete but isn’t incredibly explosive, especially when comparing him to other top guards of his class. Nice first step and change of speed but lacks elite quickness, hindering him as a perimeter defender … His lack of size and athleticism can limit him as a creator and finisher, may have to be more reliant on creativity at the next levels … Has room to get stronger …

Outlook: Incoming Arizona freshman … 2019 McDonald’s All-American … Named to the 2019 Jordan Brand Classic … Recorded 28 points, five rebounds, and five assists in the 2019 Nike Hoop Summit … 2018 and 2019 Arizona Gatorade Player of the Year … Son of Pace Mannion …
