Bobby Portis NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-9 - Power Forward - Arkansas

A long athlete with an unpolished game. Has shown vast improvement and has a high ceiling.

Pros
Very active player with long arms and excellent quickness. Gets after it on D and hits the boards hard.

Knows his limits on offense and doesn't force shots. Hits a high percentage from the field and is an above average free throw shooter for a young big. A good garbage man who cleans the glass and makes a lot of hustle plays. Gets up and down the floor well.

Cons
Is not an effective outside shooter and has limited one on one moves. Has the tools to develop an effective post game but has a ways to go to develop his offensive game.

Not a very powerful player and could get pushed around at the next level.

Projection: mid first round pick in the 2015 or 2016 NBA Draft
