Allonzo Trier NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-3 - Shooting Guard - Arizona

A pure scorer with really good quickness but lacking ideal size.

Pros
An aggressive scorer who puts a ton of pressure on the D. Is always looking to get into the lane and get his shot. Has a quick first step and overall good athleticism. Has an advanced array of moves to get his shot off including a nice turn around J and a knack for creating space with the dribble. Has a pro level mid range game.

Has really good body control and excellent leaping ability. Attacks the rim with a vengeance and is always a threat to take it into the lane and dunk.

Has all the athleticism and the mentality to be a good defender and has shown a lot of improvement on the defensive end. Is becoming a good on the ball defender and has an improved understanding of team defense.

Cons
Is a bit undersized at 6-3. He's a pure scorer but not necessarily a pure shooter. Can get overzealous with driving the ball and tends to force the issue.

Needs to get more consistent with his three point shooting.

Comparisons
Reminds of Lou Williams.

Projection: second round pick in the 2017 NBA Draft
