E.J. Montgomery NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-10 - Power Forward - FL

A fluid combo forward who can score from all three levels.

Pros
Has nice length and is a fluid athlete who excels in the open court.

Shoots the ball very well (lefty) for a young big man and projects as a stretch 4 at the next level. Has good handles and is adept at leading the fast break.

Can really play above the rim and has a good feel for getting open underneath and has good timing on put-back dunks.

Cons
Needs to add strength and continue to work on his body. Needs to develop his post moves and refine his back to the basket game. 

Comparisons
Is built like Chris Bosh and has a similar type of skill set.

Projection: lottery pick in the 2019 NBA Draft
