NBA Comparison: Evan Turner

Strengths: 2-guard with a big high school reputation and a lot of physical tools to work with ... He’s very aggressive going to the rim ... He has the quickness to blow by defenders and size to absorb contact in the paint ... He has a near seven-foot wingspan ... That allows him to get his shot off over taller forwards and centers ... Played some point in high school, and retains some ability as a facilitator ... He has great court awareness when he gets into the lane ... He makes quick decisions to attack once he sees centers are out of the lane ... He knows how to draw fouls at a high rate ... He averaged 6 free throws per game last season ... When he gets into the lane, he’s adept at finding the open man ... He’s great in transition ... When he has the ball, he pushes aggressively ... Without it he’s great at filling the lanes and finishing ... He is a good rebounder for a guard, particularly offesnively ... He grabbed over 5 rebounds per game last season ... Having grabbed 1.4 offensive rebounds per game last season ... He can create extra possessions for his teammates … In the NBA, guards who can generate extra possessions by rebounding are a bonus ... He’s able to take advantage of smaller matchups and post up smaller guards ... He’s a solid defender ... With his physical tools, his potential is excellent ... He’s great at attacking out of the pick roll to get into the lane ... He’s shown nice touch around the rim ... Has a solid ability to shoot off the dribble ...

Weaknesses: Doesn't always look fully engaged in the game and intensity level seems to come and go ... He struggles shooting the three-point shot ... He only hit on 27% of his 3 pointers last year, while taking almost four a game ... Decision making needs work ... He is prone to taking shooting questionable shots at times ... He needs to improve his free throw shooting ... He shot 72% but improving upon it will add to his point totals ... He’s not an explosive athlete ... At times his defensive effort can be lagging ... He can be to ball dominant on offense at times, leading to bad shots ... He can be careless with the ball at times, leading to poor turnovers ... He’s to reliant on his right hand, which will make him easier to defend in the NBA ... He has trouble controlling the game from the half court ... A part of the problem with his three-point shot is that he’s hesitant to take them at times ... He struggles when he is forced to be the primary playmaker ... He needs to improve his overall efficiency as he shot just under 45 percent from the field ... That’s not bad but it could improve ...

Outlook: At 6’6, 215 pounds, he’s already bigger than nearly every shooting guard other than Jimmy Butler, DeMar DeRozan, and Klay Thompson ... Romeo Langford is expected to be a mid-first round pick in the 2019 draft ... He is a good athlete with a lot of potential to be an impact player on an NBA team ... With the game being as guard dominant as it is today, a guard who can score has added value ... He will need to develop his ability to shoot in today’s era of spacing, but with NBA coaches helping him, that shouldn’t be a problem if he works hard ... With his size and length, he can develop into a great 3 and D player ... His versatility will as a scorer, rebounder, and solid playmaker, will make him a coveted pick in a league that values players who can do multiple things ...

Notes: Measured 6'4 without shoes, 6'5 with shoes, 196 lbs, with a 6'10.5 wingspan and 8'6.5 standing reach at the June 2017 USA U19 tryouts ... He has 2 sisters, Tiffany and Tisha ... He was fifth nationally in Freshman scoring ... He made the Big Ten All-Freshman Team ... He had his first double-double of his college career against Arkansas ... He was the top scorer among freshmen in the Big 10 ...

Strengths: 6’6.5 two-guard … Good length with a 6’11 wingspan and 8’8 standing reach … Good shooting and natural scoring ability, especially in isolation ... Can create offense against a set defense ... Can shoot off the catch and dribble ... Scores well from midrange and has range out to NBA three ... Good footwork on the perimeter, can score off step backs and pull ups. Gets his shot off under pressure fairly easily ... Always squared up and shoots well on the move … Good touch on floaters … Good feel for the game and shot selection. Plays within the flow of the game without forcing his will … Reads his defender well, knows how to draw fouls while staying under control. Shot 7.1 free throws per game over the adidas Gauntlet … Spaces the floor ... Makes proper reads and cuts … Can take guards into the post and utilizes his fadeaway … Solid handle, can free himself up for a pull up or get to the rim in minimal dribbles … Unselfish. Good passing ability and gets teammates involved ... Draws the help defense and finds the open man … Natural athleticism that translates well in games, uses it well in the half court and transition ... Finishes plays above the rim with good body control … Even keeled, doesn’t get too high or low. Doesn’t get rattled or rushed … Competes on both ends. Good length, versatility, and foot speed as a defender …

Weaknesses: Needs to improve his ball handling when going fast or pressured in the back court ... Loses the ball often trying to split double teams or making moves when breaking the press … Although he shoots the ball well, he can improve his free throw shooting. Shot 69.2% from the line at adidas Nations … Unselfish but a high-volume shooter ... Settles for deep contested shots at times … Has room to get stronger … While it isn’t a bad thing that he has Kawhi Leonard type emotions throughout the game, he can improve his aggression and intensity level … Had nearly twice as many turnovers (25) as assists (13) over the adidas Gauntlet …
