Winston Shepard NBA Draft Scouting Report

Credit: Zack Long
NBA Draft Prospect Winston Shepard

6-8 - Small Forward - San Diego State

A point forward with an NBA ready body and a lot of upside.

Pros
Has NBA level athleticism and great size/speed combination. Handles the ball well and is a natural slasher and good passer.

Excels in the open court and on the fast break. Elevates well and is an above the rim player.  Gets to the rim well in the half court with a great first step and good ball fakes.

Cons
A low percentage shooter from the field who lacks an outside shot and is terrible from the free throw line. Is likely to improve in all categories but has a long way to go.

Projection: late first or early second round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft
