NBA Comparison: Doron Lamb

Strengths: Led the NCAA in scoring as a sophomore, was a prolific shooter both off the dribble and in spot-up situations ... Also led the nation in made three point shots, with 4 made three pointers per game, was 128-297 (43.1%) 3PT in 2015 ... Improved his two-point percentage greatly his junior year as well, while also being an 84.7% FT shooter on a nice volume. Moves very well when playing off the ball, with a very quick lefty release ... Works great off screens and often is able to find the necessary space to get off his shot ... Great at knocking down catch-and-shoot threes ... Drew fouls at a very high rate, even drew occasional fouls when attempting three pointers ... Quick, shifty player that would knife his way into the paint ... Has top flight ball handling ability, often was able to split double teams off the dribble ... Finished well around the rim with both hands ... Looks for and initiates contact when in the paint ... A better playmaker than he receives credit for ... A very good passer out of the pick and roll and off of screens ... Gives a decent effort when battling on the boards ... Would find a way to snatch a rebound away from a bigger player at times ... Was solid in isolation defense ... Uses his hands well to disrupt his opponents ... Decent lateral quickness, definitely gives a good effort on defense ... Relied upon to play huge minutes these past two seasons, a lot of experience and was expected to be an incredibly high usage player ... Did not have as many turnovers as one might expect for a player as relied upon as he was

Weaknesses: Harvey lacks the typical level of athleticism one expects in a high level NBA guard ... Should hope to add strength to fight through screens, really lacks ideal size at this point in time to gain many minutes ... Does not have the size to regularly play shooting guard and does not have the athleticism and point guard skills to play that position ... Often attempted too many quick, contested jump shots from behind the arc, though may have been part of his huge role for EWU ... Had problems getting his shot off against taller, longer defenders ... Dropped percentage when defenders covered him tightly ... A score first guard at this point in his career, will need to get used to playing more off of the ball ... Picks up his dribble too often when he's being pressured ... Not always a very accurate passer ... Hard time staying with opposing players on dribble drives ... Does not offer much pressure when on the ball ... Prone to commit lazy fouls, sometimes resulting in some bad and-ones around the hoop ... Sags too far off the player he is guarding in both on and off ball situations ... Can suffer from mental lapses on the defensive end, lose focus of his assignment ... Really over pursues shooters, which can lead to him falling back on his heels and giving them room

Notes: First Team All-Big Sky Conference in both 2013-14 and 2014-15 ... Second Team NABC All-District 6 (2013-14) ... 2015 Lou Henson (Mid-Major) All-American ... Named 2015 Academic All-American 1st Team and was an Honorable Mention AP All-American ... Led the NCAA in scoring as a junior, with 738 points (23.1 ppg), with 3.6 rpg and 2.6 apg ... Finished his career 1,564 points (18.6 ppg) while shooting 46.3% FG, 84.7% FT and 43.2% 3PT ... Led Eastern Washington to their first NCAA appearance since 2004, scoring 27 points in a 2nd round loss to Georgetown ... Measured in at 6'2.75" without shoes, 6'4" with shoes, a 6'5.5" wingspan and 8'2.5" standing reach at the 2015 NBA Draft Combine ... Weighed in at just 181 lbs at the Combine

Overall: Once Harvey figures out what role he will play, he can prosper in the league. While he may be considered a tweener, his ability to play on and off the ball will be very much coveted at the next level. He also has elite shooting ability and can catch fire quickly. Has a chance to be a shooting specialist if he is groomed properly.
