2014 FIBA U18 Americas Championship: World Scouting Reports
June 26, 2014
Mike Schmitz

Strengths
-Very good size, length and frame for a shooting guard.
-Can really shoot it. Excellent mechanics. Smooth release. Best spotting up and coming off of screens but is capable off the bounce.
-Good on ball defender. Works hard. Solid lateral quickness. Can get over screens.
-Good awareness and instincts off the ball. Understands positioning and where to be.
-Does a little bit of everything. Potential to be more than just a shooter. Solid passing instincts. Passes ahead in transition.

Weaknesses
-Smooth athlete but lacks explosiveness.
-Struggles with anything inside the arc. Very low 2P%.
-Average ball handler. Not a liability but doesn't have much shake with the ball.
-Struggles finishing through contact and over length.
-Plays hard overall but loses focus at times.
-Needs to get stronger.
