Nazreon Reid NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-8 - Power Forward New Jersey

A powerful and aggressive post player who is one of the top prospects in his class.

Pros
Long, strong and coordinated athlete who is an old school, physical player. Makes his presence felt in the paint on both ends of the floor. Reid is a solid rebounder and intimating shot blocker who can defend above the rim.

Has skills as a passer and a flair for the dramatic. Has developing ball handling skills and a decent looking mid range jumper.

Cons
Needs to play under better control and make smarter decisions. His attitude can be both a strength and a weakness.

Comparisons
Built like Joe Smith, with a similar type of post game. Reminds of Noah Vonleh.

Projection: first round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft
