Rasheed Sulaimon NBA Draft Scouting Report

NBA Draft Prospect Rasheed Sulaimon

6-4 - Shooting Guard - Maryland

Athletic and long-armed 2-guard who plays an efficient and well-rounded game.

Pros
A complete basketball player who can score, pass, defend and rebound. Plays under control and with good intelligence.

Doesn't have ideal height but makes up for it with long arms and good athleticism. Shows a quick first step into the lane and can finish above the rim. Uses his length and quickness well on defense and plays with good position.

Shot an impressive 37% from thee point land as a freshman and should continue to improve his accuracy. Almost automatic from the free throw line and an overall very efficient and effective scorer. See the floor well and plays within the flow of the offense and is a willing passer.

Cons
Needs to show a killer instinct and become 'the man'. Could struggle against NBA size on the wing.

Projection: possible second round pick in the 2016 NBA Draft
