2015 Kentucky Combine Measurements and Analysis

Oct 11, 2015, 08:58 pm
Charles Matthews has tremendous size for an NBA shooting guard standing 6'6 with a 6'9 wingspan and a 189-pound frame. Having gained just 2 pounds since last summer, Matthews is a lean athlete with great explosiveness. His 41.5 inch maximum vertical leap is terrific. He's built similar to Zach LaVine, who at 6'5.75 with a 6'8.25 wingspan and 181-pound frame registered a 41.5 maximum vertical leap at the 2014 NBA Combine, but of course is not quite as athletic.

Recruiting Rankings: 247: #14, ESPN: #9, Scout: #13, Rivals: #13

-Good size for a wing. Measured 6-6 with shoes
-Very good athlete. Explosive. Can play above the rim with ease
-Good scoring instincts
-Solid perimeter shooter. Nice shooting mechanics and soft touch. Made 38% of his 3-point attempts at the Nike EYBL. Reliable with feet set
-Good in transition
-Very quick first step. Gets to the free throw line at a high rate
-Makes plays defensively thanks to physical tools. Can be outstanding here if he commits to it

-Inefficient scorer. 39% from 2-point range at Nike EYBL
-Average ball-handler. Rarely gets all the way to the basket in the half-court
-Settles too often for off-balance floaters and other low percentage shots inside the arc
-Needs to keep getting stronger, which should help him become a better finisher inside the paint
-Doesn't know how to use his body to create contact.
-Does not have a great wingspan (6-7 ½)
-Has an ugly looking stroke shooting off the dribble.

Outlook: Developing wing prospect with good physical attributes and a nice stroke from outside. Shows potential as a scorer, but must improve his ball-handling skills and pull-up jumper. Has nice upside to continue to develop long-term.
