NBA Comparison: Jalen Johnson

Strengths: 6’9 wing … Good size for position with a 6’11 wingspan … Very good mobility at his size … Pure jump shot with proper mechanics; providing a quick release, no wasted motion, and high release point. Stays squared up and ready to go into his shot before he catches the ball. Shot 40% 3PT% on 6.3 attempts per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 …  Averaged 8.7 points per game on 50% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018. Averaged 17.4 points per game on 53.4% FG% over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Reliable free throw shooter. Made all 5 free throws at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018. Shot 85.2% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Very active off the ball … Posts up smaller defenders and uses size well around the basket. Shows a fadeaway … Unselfish … Although plays a lot off the ball, he’s not as turnover prone as most players his age and caliber. Averaged 1.4 turnovers per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 and 3 turnovers over 3 games in 2019. Averaged 1 turnover per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Mature game, plays under control, and doesn’t wear his emotion … Easy to see his value at the next levels …

Weaknesses: Very well coordinated but isn’t real explosive and lacks foot speed on the perimeter … Isn’t much of an initiator offensively and isn’t great creating for himself or breaking down the defense. Isn’t much of a threat to get to the rim once he puts his dribble down … Can improve aggression level as he can be passive and probably plays within himself too much. Only shot 5 free throws over 7 games at the U19 World Cup in 2021. Shot 0.7 free throws per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 and 1 free throw over 3 games in 2019. Shot 2.3 free throws per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Very good shooter but doesn’t have a diverse scoring arsenal and doesn’t contribute a heavy amount in areas outside of scoring … Doesn’t stand out as a rebounder at his size. Averaged 3.7 rebounds per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 and 2019. Averaged 4.8 rebounds per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Unselfish and passing/court vision is solid but not advanced. Only averaged 0.6 assists per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 and recorded 3 assists over 3 games in 2019. Averaged 1.8 assists per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Not much of a shot blocker. Only averaged 0.3 blocks per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 and blocked 1 shot over 3 games in 2019. Averaged 0.8 blocks per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 …

Outlook: Milwaukee freshman … 2021 McDonald’s All-American … Named to the 2021 Jordan Brand Classic … Named to the 2021 Nike Hoop Summit … Won Gold at the U19 World Cup in 2021 … 2020 Wisconsin Gatorade Player of the Year …
