Ball Handling

NBA Comparison: Casey Jacobson

Strengths: At 6’7, 207 pounds, Bullock has good size and length for the NBA SG position … Showed vast improvement in each season at UNC shooting the ball and was one of the ACC’s top 3 shooters this year … Took on much more of a leadership role at UNC his junior year and was easily Carolina’s most consistent performer … Shot almost 44% from deep on 5.8 attempts per game (over half of his overall field goal attempts a game) … Has a text book shooting stroke and a quick release … Moves well without the ball and shoots it very well running off of screens or spotting up for open looks … Bullock is a very smart player that plays to his strengths and "stays within himself" … Prudent ball protector. Only averaged 1.2 turnovers a game while playing the most minutes for the Heels at 31.4 per game … A great rebounder for his size (6.5 per game), especially evident when UNC switched to their smaller line up late in the season … Has a nice Euro step move when going into the lane … Could turn out to be the perfect scoring role player for a team in the NBA …

Weaknesses: Plays a finesse game and could stand to get a lot tougher … Bullock does not possess great 1-on-1 skills due to his lack of ball handling ability and ability to drive by opponents … Will need facilitators on the floor to set him up as his ability to create shots is virtually nonexistant … Despite being highly recruited and seen as an elite athlete in high school, did not show it while at UNC … Rarely even tried to dunk the basketball and sometimes would miss close range shots because he did not go up strong with the ball .. Did not take the offensive strides many expected in his new role his junior year. Decent at finishing around the rim but definitely needs to develop a better floater/tear drop game to succeed at the next level … Not an aggressive enough player going to the rim, evidenced by him only averaging 2.1 free throw attempts per game … Needs to improve his ball handling if he ever wants to be an NBA shooting guard and strength if he wants to be a starting forward … Considering his size and athleticism, Bullock should be a much better defender. He doesn’t seem to put the same emphasis on it and his focus and intensity are not great … Doesn;t seem to like to get his hands dirty and get physical on the defensive end and his numbers show that he’s a below average on ball and overall defender … Leaves you wanting more, and wondering if he had more competitiveness and toughness how much better he could be …

Notes: The combine and workouts will be important for Bullock’s draft stock as he may get to show scouts athleticism not seen during his college career.
