NBA Comparison: Luguentz Dort/Rodney Stuckey

Strengths: A physical, imposing combo guard who gets to the basket with his size and strength in the lane … Shifty defender who slides well and can harass guards both on and off the ball … Physical enough to play on the perimeter and switch onto forwards even with a size mismatch … Solid rebounder who isn’t afraid to challenge underneath or use his body to box out … Can score at all three levels although efficiency can be an issue in the mid-range and on the perimeter … Was thrown into point-guard duties, so he has the experience of running an offense, although he is more useful off the ball. Can get his own shot as a primary ball-handler … Capable spot-up shooter who has plenty of potential to improve … Generally takes care of the ball and stays out of foul trouble, averaging 1.3 in both categories in 30 minutes per game … Gets to the line thanks to his physicality and willingness to draw contact on drives with nearly three attempts per game … Beams with athleticism … Strong and durable frame … Five-star prospect with a lot of untapped potential and plenty of time to prove it at only 18-years-old … Proved to be extremely clutch, playing his best in the team’s biggest games of the season (Madison Square Garden on opening night, in New Orleans in Final Four against UNC) …

Weaknesses: Not really a great fit at either guard position as his passing and speed doesn’t make him ideal to run the lead guard, and small and lacks outside shooting for an off guard … Was expected to be an elite shooter at Duke, due to his practice shooting, but struggled from the outside as only a 31% 3-point shooter and 42% overall shooter from the field … Tends to drive with his head down and gets himself caught in the lane with nowhere to go … Doesn’t have great court vision due to this fact and his playmaking skills reduce because of it … Can play a little selfish at times, which leads to his few turnovers per game … Can disappear for large periods at a time, which is expected on a team as talented as Duke, but his surrounding teammates are only going to get better at the next level … Needs to improve his free-throw shooting dramatically as he was only a 67% shooter at the line in his freshman season … Doesn’t have great size to play at the 2, but doesn’t have the playmaking skills to run the point either. Needs to improve his vision and accuracy as a passer

Notes: Exploded onto the scene at Duke with game-high 25 points in win over Kentucky to start the season … 2021-22 All-ACC Freshman Team … 2021 MaxPreps Virginia HS Player of the Year … Played with Duke teammate Jeremy Roach at Paul VI in Virginia … McDonald’s All-American and USA Nike Hoop Summit participant in 2021 … Five-star combo guard ranked No. 20 in ESPN 100 …
