2015 FIBA U19 World Championship Scouting Reports: Small Forwards
July 9, 2015
Jonathan Givony

Strengths:
-Great size for a wing at 6-8 in shoes. 200 pound frame that will fill out nicely in time
-Incredibly fluid and mobile athlete. Silky smooth
-Quick jumper. Surprises you with his ability to get up and make plays around the rim. Way more explosive than you'd expect on first glance
-Tremendous ball-handler in open court. Huge weapon in transition. Ignites the break on regular basis
-Shows nice potential in pick and roll and isolation situations
-Can make shots with feet set and off the dribble. Hit 40% of 3-point attempts on limited number of attempts at U19s. Career 76% free throw shooter already
-Great feel for getting in the passing lanes. 3.2 steals per 40. Also shows terrific anticipation skills for blocks (1.5 per-40)
-Two years younger than much of the competition as a 1998-born player.

Weaknesses:
-Doesn't know how to use his tools consistently in the half-court at the moment
-Can't always finish everything he creates around the basket. Lacks a degree of strength and toughness. Shies away from contact at times. Made just 35% of attempts inside the paint in the half-court
-Barely got to free throw line at U19s
-Needs to improve the quickness of his release on jump-shot, both with feet set and off the dribble.
-Career 28% 3-point shooter. Will become a good shooter in time, but not automatic quite yet

Outlook: Superbly talented wing player with a terrific skill-level and feel for the game. Effortless athlete for whom everything comes easy.

2015 USA Basketball U19 Measurements Released
June 15, 2015
-Jayson Tatum has grown nearly three inches and added 25 pounds to his frame since his first USA Basketball experience as a 14-year old three years ago. Tatum isn't quite as long as Otto Porter, but at 6'8 in shoes with a 200 pound frame and 6'10.5 wingspan shares some similarities physically with the Wizards small forward who measured 6'8.5 in shoes with a 200-pound frame and 7'1.5 wingspan in 2013 at the NBA Draft Combine. Only 17 years old, Tatum could conceivably continue to grow in the coming years.
