Denzel Valentine NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-6 - Small Forward - Michigan State

A veteran leader with a well rounded game.

Pros
Impacts all aspects of the game, from the defensive end, to scoring and assisting and bringing great leadership and hustle. Has exceptionally high basketball I.Q. and always makes the right play. One of the best passers in the draft.

Has a much improved shooting touch and three point shot and has shown great improvement from the free throw line, now hitting well over 80%.

Well built with broad shoulders, long arms and good strength. A true warrior with a will to win.

Cons
Is a good but not great athlete and isn't the fastest player.

Projects as more of a glue-guy at the next level but could develop into a high level starter.

Doesn't shoot very well off the dribble and will need to continue to improve his three point shot.

Comparisons
Reminds of Evan Turner but with a little more passion.

Projection: mid first round pick in the 2016 NBA Draft
