Trevon Duval NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-2 - Point Guard - DE

A pure point guard with high level athleticism and good basketball I.Q.

Pros
Duval is a true lead guard who is always looking to get teammates involved. He does a nice job of controlling the pace of play and setting up the offense. Keeps his dribble alive in traffic and plays with his head up.

Has good burst combined with nice handles, which allows him to penetrate and dish, or take it to the cup. Can score in the lane with either hand and has enough elevation to throw down some nasty dunks.

Keeps the defense honest with a good looking three point shot and nice mid range J.

Uses his high-end athleticism to shut down opponents and can be a real menace on defense. A ball hawk with quick hands and quick feet. Plays both ends of the floor.
Cons
Doesn't have great length and doesn't have the size to match up against some of the bigger PGs in the League. Can he hold his own in the post?

Has more room for improvement on his outside shot.

Comparisons
He's got a little Stephon Marbury in his game.

Projection: first round pick in the 2018 or 2019 NBA Draft
