Nike Global Challenge Scouting Reports: Point Guards
July 21, 2015
Matt Coleman, 6-2, PG/SG, Norfolk, VA, 2017 High School Class


Over the course of four games Coleman proved his worth as a shifty, attacking combo guard who can really finish in the lane over length. Coleman was the only point guard to finish in the Nike Global Challenge Top 10 in field goal percentage, as he shot 53.8% from the field and a terrific 63.3% from two on 33 attempts.

Coleman's efficiency inside the arc speaks to his ability to finish in the paint despite weighing only 168 pounds, sporting a 6' 4 wingspan and being much more quick and shifty than vertical. Coleman didn't just feast on open lanes and short rim protectors. He does a really nice job using his body around the rim, is able to mix in floaters, and even flashed some of the crafty wrong foot layups and speed finishes you rarely see out of players at the high school level.

Coleman has excellent burst to help him get into the paint, and can stop and start on a dime. The rest of Coleman's offensive game, however, has quite a bit of room for improvement. He's a limited outside shooter, and while he showed some creativity as a distributor, he's much more fixated on scoring the ball at this stage of his development.

On the flip side, Coleman proved to be one of the best perimeter defenders at the camp. He plays with tremendous energy, moves his feet extremely well, and while still very light, has a decent frame that should fill out more in time. Coleman is more of a 6' 2 slashing combo than a pure point guard right now, but with his speed, savvy finishing ability and perimeter defense, the 17-year-old is surely worth tracking as he continues to progress and develop other areas of his game.
