Olivier Hanlan NBA Draft Scouting Report

credit: Heights Sports
6-3 - Combo Guard - Boston College 

Sweet shooting guard who must learn to become a true point guard to maximize his potential.

Pros
Hanlan has a picture perfect jumper and shoots the ball with good accuracy.

Is lethal from three point point range and can get into a zone and shoot the lights out.  Is a heady player who takes good shots and doesn't force the issue. Could score a lot more points per game if he wasn't so unselfish.

Shows good potential as a set-up man and does a decent job of penetrating into the lane and dishing. Plays with his head up and sees the court well.

Cons
Has a slow shot and will have to get a quicker release, without loosing accuracy, to reach his potential.

Is not a natural point guard but doesn't have ideal size or athleticism to play on the wing in the NBA.

A step slow.

Projection: second round pick in the 2014 or 2015 NBA Draft
