NBA Comparison: Josh Hart

Strengths: 6’5 combo guard … Solid length with a 6’7 wingspan and 8’4 standing reach … Good athleticism. Quick first step … Finishes plays at and at the rim with good body control … Good strength. Plays physical … Good aggression and confidence … Stays in attack mode … Good shooting and scoring ability … Heats up and develops rhythm quickly … Shoots well from midrange and three. Shot 40% from three over the adidas Gauntlet. Good step back and pull up jump shot … Unselfish … Possesses solid court vision, passing ability, and decision making … Finished with 3.4 assists to 1.4 turnovers per game at adidas Nations … Solid ballhandler … Plays well off the ball … Reads opportunities to cut to the basket for alley oops and knows how to space the floor … Draws fouls at a good rate … Good rebounder for position … Averaged 5.7 per game over the adidas Gauntlet … Good potential as a perimeter defender with his size and quickness … Averaged 1.1 steals per game over the adidas Gauntlet and 1.2 per game at adidas Nations …

Weaknesses: Can be an inconsistent performer … Over the first session of the adidas Gauntlet, he had a 23-point (10-17, 58%) game sandwiched between two six-point games (1-12, 8.3% & 1-10, 10%) … In the second session, he erupted for 41 points (16-23, 69.6% and 7-12, 58.3% from three) and followed up with a four-point (2-11, 18.2%) game … Doesn’t beat or break down the defense much off the dribble, needs triple threat … Creating offense against players with his size and athleticism will be a challenge … Settles for outside and contested shots at times … Can cut down on his 2.6 turnovers per game over the adidas Gauntlet … Can improve as a free throw shooter. Shot 66.7% from the line over the adidas Gauntlet and 40% at adidas Nations … Solid in multiple areas but doesn’t have a specific area where he provides top shelf ability or separates himself …

Averaged 29.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game as a senior … Helped USA Red 2018 to win the championship scoring 14 points (4-6) from three in the championship game …

Notes: Notes: Measured 6′ 4” barefoot, 6′ 5.25” in shoes, 8′ 4.5” standing reach, 209.6 lbs, and 6′ 7.75” wingspan at the 2019 NBA Combine  … Measured: 6’4.5″ in shoes, 6’3″ barefoot, 204 lbs, 6’7″ wingspan, 8’4″ standing reach at the 2018 Nike Hoop Summit …
