V.J. King NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-7 - Small Forward - OH

Highly skilled wing player with a polished offensive game. The best player to come out of St. Vincent St. Mary's since King James.

Pros
Has an advanced offensive game including an exceptional mid range jumper. Gets great elevation on his shot and is extremely polished for such a young player. Is an excellent passer and very good ball handler.  Has great range on his jumper and improving accuracy from downtown. Is deadly on step back and fade away jumpers.

Runs the floor well and is adept at attacking the rim and drawing fouls. Is very creative with the ball and nearly impossible to guard one on one.

Has active hands on defense and uses his length well to lock up his man.

Cons
Needs to add strength. Needs to develop a killer instinct and learn to takeover big games.

Projection: lottery pick in the 2017 NBA Draft
