NBA Comparison: Amir Coffey

Strengths: An athletic wing with good size and lock down defensive potential … Much improved perimeter shooter who jumped from 32% to 43% in his final season at UConn … Terrific finisher in transition with great speed and leaping ability to get out in front and throw down emphatic slams … One of the best rebounding guards in the country who always crashed the offensive glass with high energy. Huge reason why UConn was a top-five offensive rebounding team in the nation, corralling over two offensive boards per game … Swiss army knife type wing who can produce on both ends of the floor with physicality and energy … Versatile defender who can guard 1-3 and maybe some 4’s … Decent ball-handler who is comfortable putting the ball on the deck and getting to the hoop … Solid passer who averaged two assists per game for the Huskies … Projects as an immediate impact role player who can defend and shoot from all over the floor. Hawks can feel comfortable assigning him up to 20 minutes per game …

Weaknesses:  Only shot 32% from the perimeter in his previous three seasons in college … Already 23 years old without a ton of upside … Doesn’t have elite length with just a 6’8 wingspan, only an inch longer than his measured height of 6’7 … Decent shot-creator at the collegiate level, but could struggle to get his own shot at the professional level … Although he is an aggressive defender, he didn’t produce many steals or blocks due to his lack of truly great length … Only a 67% free-throw shooter which didn’t improve much from year to year in college …

Notes: Measured: 6’5.5” barefoot, 6’6.75” in shoes, 8’3.5” standing reach, 215.8 lbs, 6’8.0” wingspan at the 2022 NBA G-League Elite Camp … Attended William Allen High School in Allentown, PA … Played for Dan Hurley at Rhode Island and Connecticut during his four collegiate seasons … Started in all four seasons in college … Second-round pick to the Atlanta Hawks in 2022 NBA Draft …
