Miles Bridges NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-7 - SF - Michigan State

Super strong wing with a great build, a nice skill level and very high end athleticism.

Pros
A powerful player who has the body to hold his own at the highest levels. Very strong for a wing but without sacrificing quickness. Can really elevate, especially considering his strength and weight.

Seems to know that he's the best player on the floor and steps up in big moments. Doesn't shy away from the spotlight.

Scores from all three levels

Is a committed defender who can lock down his man and forces a lot of turnovers. Gets back in transition well and is an underrated rim protector.

Cons
Needs to improve from the free throw stripe and become a knock down three point shooter.

Isn't a great ball handler and can get sloppy with the dribble, especially in transition.

Comparisons
Reminds of Jerry Stackhouse.

Projection: lottery pick in the 2017 NBA Draft
