Jarred Vanderbilt NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-8 - Small Forward - TX

A versatile combo forward who can do it all on the floor and excels in transition.

Pros
A complete player with a good motor and great physical tools. Smooth with the dribble and gets to the rim well. Plays with his head up and is a talented passer with good decision making. Runs the floor well and can really get after the rim.

Is developing a nice perimeter game with range out to three. Shows a consistent form on his shot with decent mechanics.

A very tough defender who can lock up any position on the court.

Cons
Needs to get better and gain consistency as a jump shooter and continue to expand his range.

Comparisons
Reminds of Thaddeus Young with a little Lamar Odom in his game.

Projection: lottery pick in the 2018 NBA Draft
