Prospect A

  • 6-1 height

  • 6-8 wingspan

  • 190 IBS

  • Great first step, great lateral quickess, 40 inch vertical

  • Decent handle, can make spin and cross moves to get to the rim

  • Active on-ball defender and can be lock-down at times, ideal for point of attack defense, solid team defender, plays the passing lanes well

  • Great playmaker in the open court, a natural fit with his bulldoze towards the rim, uninspiring playmaker in the half-court

  • Jumpshot both off the dribble and of the set shot is inconsistent

  • Draws a decent amount of free throws, shoots 74% at the line

  • Can mentally check out of games when he doesn't get going at times, can speed himself up even when it's unneeded, gets tunnel vision to get to the rim often

  • 180 IBS

  • 20 years old

  • Great first step, Exceptional lateral quickness, 38 inch vertical

  • Smaller frame

  • Not the greatest handle, but it can get him a shot if needed

  • Not much of a playmaker, not to be counted on to run a offense

  • Doesn't get to the line that often, converted 67% at the line in high school and college combined, not the best finished at the rim

Prospect C

  • 6-7 wingspan

  • 195 IBS

  • 24 years old

  • Mediocre first step, below average lateral quickness, less than 30 inch vertical

  • Good anticipation on open passing lanes and a creative playmaker, sometimes can be turnover heavy

  • Opporates the pick-N-roll effectively, going through his reads and keeping his dribble alive, can run a half-court offense

  • Has a crafty handle

  • Uses both hands to finish at the rim, but is still not good around the rim as a finisher due to his limited athleticism

  • Capable off-ball player, can come off screens for shots

  • Has 3 point range on the jumper, but the jumper is also inconsistent at the moment to be fully relied upon

  • Doesn't draw many free throws, converts 66% at the line

  • Erratic, yet gifted court vision, can look like Magic Johnson one play and Kendrick Perkins the next, can sparingly run the offense with a drive and kick game

  • Can be a lock down on-ball defender with his physicality, length, decent quickness, and relentless energy

  • Team and off-ball defense is consistently inconsistent

  • Inconsistent pull-up jumper from mid range, not much of a 3 point threat, much more of a rhythm shooter than a catch-and-shoot guy

Prospect E

  • 6-3 height

  • Not stocky, but a fairly strong frame

  • Top tier first step, great lateral quickness, 35-ish inch vertical, changes direction with ease

  • Decent handle, shifty, explosive, nice cross and splits double teams with ease, at times leaves his handle a little high and dry

  • Runs the pick-N-roll well, excellent usage of ball screens, gets into the paint quite frequently, likes to go to his right hand a lot

  • Competent in the half-court as a playmaker, but nothing exceptional, great in the open court, can get tunnel vision at times and become turnover prone
