Simisola Shittu NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-10 - PF - Vanderbilt

A graceful and smooth athlete with great size and an advanced all around game.

Pros
Has awesome athletic ability, strength and leaping ability. Gets off the ground well and has nice hang time and body control in the air.

Very fast and smooth in transition and excels in an up tempo game.

Has really high upside as a defender due to his great coordination, size and speed. Has long arms (7-1 wingspan) and good instincts on D. Can guard multiple positions and has enough size to defend at the rim.

Cons
Is still developing his perimeter game and improving his outsides shot. Needs to work on his ball handling skills.

Comparisons
Reminds of a taller Thad Young with his versatility and solid all around game, or Donyell Marshall.

Projection: possible first round pick in the 2019 or 2020 NBA Draft
