adidas Nations Scouting Reports Part 1
August 10, 2014
Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: Scout #9, 24/7 #12, Rivals #8, ESPN #7

Strengths:
-Good size for his position at 6-8
-Excellent frame
-Very long wingspan (measured at 7-1+)
-Smooth, fluid athlete
-Great scoring instincts
-Unselfish player. Makes the extra pass
-Very effective in transition
-Doesn't shoot a ton of 3-pointers but makes the ones he takes at a decent clip (35% 3P% on 110 attempts in 49 career EYBL games)
-Can score a little with his back to the basket thanks to length, quickness, scoring instincts
-Uses his long wingspan and strong instincts to get plenty of blocks, steals and offensive rebounds at the high school level

Weaknesses:
-More smooth than explosive. Not super vertical
-Has a slow release on his jump-shot. Looks hesitant to take open shots from outside at times
-Settles for too many bad shots inside the arc. Loves to take all kinds of low-percentage floaters and runners inside the paint
-Had a very low 2-point percentage (47%) in the 2014 EYBL.
-Not a great finisher around the basket
-Somewhat of a tweener at this stage. Not strong enough to guard most big men. Struggles to operate on the perimeter full time
-Rarely in an actual defensive stance
-Lets opposing perimeter players blow right past him

Outlook: Long, smooth, talented forward with excellent scoring instincts. A little bit stuck between positions at this stage. Says he sees himself as a stretch power forward in the NBA long term.
