R.J. Hunter NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-5 - Shooting Guard - Georgia State

One of the best outside shooters in college ball with a great feel for getting his shot.

Pros
Hunter can really stretch the defense and open up the court on the offensive end. He's got a great three point shot and is always a threat to knock one down from deep.  Plays well without the ball and knows how to get his shot. Sees the floor well and is a high level passer with a good feel for the offensive flow.

A very heady defender with quick hands and a knack for stripping the ball and reading the passing lanes. Makes up for less than ideal athleticism with good understanding, anticipation and positioning.

An elite free throw shooter.

Cons
Has good but not great athleticism and could be outmatched at the next level. Is not a true above the rim player. Needs to add strength.

Needs to work on his dribble drive and getting to the rim to draw fouls.

Comparisons
Built like Allan Houston and shoots the ball just as well.

Reminds of MarShon Brooks with his shooting ability and average dribble-drive game.

Projection: late first or early second round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft
