Justin Jackson NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-8 - Small Forward - UNC

Skilled forward with good length but a skinny frame.

Pros
Crafty scorer who doesn't beat you with elite athleticism but knows how to shake free and uses his length well.

Has a soft touch and good mid range scoring ability. His shot doesn't always look good but he hits a good percentage.

Excels in transition and has an uncanny ability to find space behind the defense.

A team first guy to contributes in all aspects of the game.

Cons
Has a skinny frame and needs to add a lot of weight and strength.

Shoots a flat-footed outside shot with unusual mechanics and a slow release. Doesn't stand out in any one aspect.

Needs to develop better handles and refine his moves to the rim.

Projection: late first to mid second round pick in the 2016 or 2017 NBA Draft
