adidas Nations Scouting Reports Part 1
August 10, 2014
Justin Simon, 6'5, Point Guard, Temecula Valley (CA), Class of 2015
Committed to Arizona

Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: Scout #41, 24/7 #43, Rivals #23, ESPN #23

Strengths:
-Great size for his position. Measured 6-5 in shoes. Excellent frame
-Tremendous wingspan. Measured at 6-11
-Big hands
-Gifted athlete. Quick in the open court. Can play above the rim with ease
-Excels in transition thanks to his excellent physical tools
-Can find the open man in drive and dish situations
-Outstanding defender capable of guarding multiple positions
-Moves feet extremely well. Puts pressure on the ball
-Generates blocks and steals. Outstanding rebounder for his position

Weaknesses:
-Limited offensive player in the half-court
-Lacks serious range on his jump-shot. Only made 11 total 3-pointers in 28 games (39 attempts) at the adidas Nations and Gauntlet events this summer
-Average ball-handler in the half-court, particularly with left hand
-Struggles to create high percentage shots for himself and others against set defenses. Shot 40% from 2-point range this summer
-Doesn't have great touch around the rim yet. Not an efficient finisher if he can't simply dunk the ball
-A year old for his class. Will be 20 years old before he's even eligible to be drafted

Outlook: Gifted physical specimen with tremendous potential defensively. Unselfish player who likes to get others involved, but still has a ways to go to round out his offensive skill-level, particularly his outside shot.
