Marvin Bagley III NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-11 - Center - Gilbert, AZ

Bagley might be the highest upside prospect since Anthony Davis. He's very young and it will be fun to watch him develop over the coming years, to see if he reaches his high upside potential.

Pros
Has great size, length and athleticism and a rare skill set for such a young player. Plays above the rim effortlessly and is a smooth and fluid athlete. Glides up and down the court and can really explode to the basket.

Has great hands and catches everything thrown his way. Can score with either hand (lefty) and has a nice array of ball fakes and post moves. Handles the ball and sees the court well.

Plays hard and looks to dominate.

Cons
Is as complete a basketball player as you'll find at his age. There's always room for improvement in his game an filling out his body but there's not an obvious weakness in his game.

Comparisons
Has length and superb agility like a young Kevin Garnett.

Projection
Top 3 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft
