NBA Comparison: Chris Singleton

Strengths: 6’7 forward … Good length with a 6’11 wingspan … Good potential as a two-way wing … Natural athleticism. Gets off the ground well and plays above the rim … Good strength and build … Averaged 13 points per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Good shooting form with range out to the three-point line. Shot 50% 3PT% over the Nike EYBL in 2017 and 39.4% 3PT% in 2018 … Good defensive tools and shot blocker for position. Averaged 1.2 blocks per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Younger for his class, won’t turn 18 until August of his freshman year of college. Has the physical tools and upside but has a way to go to tap into it …

Weaknesses: Can be too content letting the game come to him and can improve aggression. Goes through stretches without a touch. Can move a lot more playing off the ball … Settles for contested shots, can utilize his size and athleticism more taking it into the basket. Doesn’t get to the rim at the rate his talent suggests … Doesn’t have much creativity as a finisher and can improve as a midrange scorer … Can improve as a free throw shooter. Shot 57.1% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2017 and 65.6% FT% in 2018 … Not a strong ball handler, shaky when picking up speed and lacks ability to create. Not much of a playmaker for others. Averaged 1.7 assists to two turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Passed out three assists to four turnovers over seven games at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 … Doesn’t stand out as a rebounder for someone with his size, he has his games where he can pull down double-digit boards but has his games with minimal impact as well. Averaged 3.4 rebounds per game over the Nike EYBL in 2017 and 5.3 per game in 2018. Averaged 1.6 rebounds per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 … Could really flourish if he developed an alpha dog mentality and leadership …

Outlook: Incoming Florida State freshman … Played in the 2019 Jordan Brand Classic …
