Stephen Curry Select Camp Scouting Reports
July 2, 2016

Duval proved to be one of the best point guard prospects in attendance both in terms of his play and his physical profile. From a purely physical standpoint, Duval looks the part of an NBA point guard at 6'2” with a very mature 190-plus pound frame, and at least a 6' 7” wingspan. He possesses a tremendous first step and an ability to shift gears with force as well as the vertical explosiveness to play above the rim in space.

Maybe the most positive development for Duval revolves around the progression he appears to have made with his jump shot. While he still has a ways to go and the mechanics are a bit rigid, Duval has found some semblance of consistency as he's shooting the ball the same way every time both off the catch and on his mid-range pull up. Having shot only 2-of-27 from 3 (7.4%) and 50-for-94 from the free throw line (53.2%) according to our database, any signs of growth are a positive for Duval. His upper body is a bit locked and robotic but he's getting solid rotation and shooting a set shot every time. Duval appears to be adding more ways to get to his pull up game, using his quickness and strong footwork to create some space, it's just a matter of finding ways to use those developing skills in game play.

As for the rest of his game, Duval is still at his best when he's getting a piece of the paint. He can get into the teeth of the defense without a ball screen (or split the pick and roll instinctually) thanks to his burst and elite ball skills, and has the tools to finish acrobatically around the rim, although he oftentimes unnecessarily heightens the degree of difficulty at the cup. He does a great job of spoon-feeding big men around the rim, oftentimes in highlight fashion with no-looks or creative drop offs, which can also result in ‘flash over substance' turnovers as well.

Duval is still improving his overall pick and roll play and knack for making his teammates better without getting into the teeth of the defense. While he's very good in penetration situations, he can sharpen his ability to read the game from the perimeter and make advanced passes – 18.9 assist percentage and a 16.7 turnover percentage according to 30 games in our database.

The New Castle, Delaware native is still searching for more ways to score in the half court – 14.8 points per 40 minutes on 48.8% from two-point range – but continuing to improve his jumper should open things up for him. Not the most vocal guard on the floor, Duval did have a tendency to fade in and out of scrimmages, but that's partially due to the nature of the camp.

On the defensive end Duval shows flashes of brilliance when the game got tight thanks to quick feet, strong frame, long arms and solid instincts. All in all Duval could still use some polish as a scorer, shooter and decision maker, but the groundwork is most certainly there for him to continuing to develop into a high-level lead guard prospect.

USA Basketball Junior NT Mini-Camp Scouting Reports: Point Guards
October 7, 2015

Trevon Duval, 6'2, Point Guard, Delaware, Class of 2017

Jonathan Givony

Strengths
-Good size for a point guard standing 6-2+ in shoes with a 6-7+ wingspan and a 188 pound frame
-More advanced physically than most players his age
-Terrific scoring instincts
-Extremely aggressive in transition. Has good footwork as a slasher. Does a great job of changing speeds and keeping opponents off balance. Can play above the rim or finish with either hand
-Can drive and dish or makes the extra pass along the perimeter. Will facilitate in a pinch
-Elevates nicely on jump-shot. Creates separation. Shows potential as a shooter shooting off the dribble, more-so than with feet set at moment
-Shows good instincts jumping in the passing lanes. Big wingspan helps, as do his strong anticipation skills

Weaknesses
-Very focused on his own scoring. Tends to freeze out teammates at times. Still learning how to balance the responsibilities of being a lead-guard in terms of getting others involved.
-Likes to play bully-ball at high school level. Won't work as well against better competition
-Struggles as a finisher around the basket at times. Tends to drive too deep into the paint. Settles for difficult floaters
-Decision making still a major work in progress. Overdribbles. Makes careless passes. Goes for homerun play. Somewhat turnover prone
-Not a consistent shooter at this point, particularly with feet set. Made just 23% of 3-point attempts at UAA on 53 attempts this summer.
-Tends to fling ball at the basket at times. Has some very bad misses left or right.

Outlook Aggressive combo guard with impressive scoring instincts. One of the more mature players in his class, likely done growing. Needs to continue to improve as a playmaker and outside shooter. Spectrum of opinions on him is extremely wide at the moment.

adidas Nations Scouting Reports: Point Guards
August 10, 2015

Mike Schmitz

Strengths:
-Tremendous frame. Wide shoulders. 6' 2” with a 6' 8” wingspan.
-Quick first step. Lives in the paint. Tough to stay in front of. Able to play at different speeds. Does a nice job protecting the ball on his drives to the rim.
-Advanced ball handler.
-Good athlete. Uses his size and length to finish effectively despite having average size.
-Capable distributor. Best in drive and dish situations. Does a nice job getting a piece of the paint, drawing the backline defender and dropping it off to the big. Shows flashes of creativity as a passer.
-Has the tools to be a very good on ball defender. Long arms, great frame, quick feet.
-Just turned 17 on August 3.

Weaknesses:
-More of a scoring combo guard at this stage. Would rather get buckets than distribute. Hunting assists – gives it up when it will result in an assist.
-Doesn't always move the ball around the perimeter. Likes to isolate. Has a tendency to kill possessions at times.
-Turnover prone. Gets in too deep in the paint from time to time. Throws jump passes. Tries to thread the needle.
-Very limited outside shooter. Mechanics aren't terrible but seems to lack confidence. 14-of-56 from three (25%) this summer (UAA+Nations) and 70-of-111 (63%) from the free throw line.
-Demeanor can be a bit lazy. Doesn't always bring it on the defensive end.

Outlook:
Duval is an intriguing prospect given his frame, length, quickness, ball handling ability, flashes of playmaking, and age. It will be interesting to see how the 17-year-old looks in couple of years as the game begins to slow down for him. If Duval can turn himself into more of a point guard and find a way to start making shots from the perimeter, he has a chance to be one of the better guards to come out of the 2017 high school class.

USA Basketball Development Camp Measurements and Analysis
October 9, 2014

Despite measuring 6-1 without shoes, Trevon Duval has a very long 6-7 ½ wingspan, which gives him very nice potential defensively. He is somewhat stuck between guard positions at the moment, being more focused on scoring than creating, but has really nice potential to continue to improve his all-around game thanks to his strong feel for the game, nice shooting stroke, and ability to operate at different speeds.
