Bryan Antoine NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-4 - Combo Guard - NJ

Antoine is a rangy and athletic combo guard who is a blurr in the open court and who plays with intensity.

Pros
Has the physical tools to be great. Runs the floor and glides into the air with ease. Super quick in the open court and plays a downhill style.

A very pesky defender who puts a ton of pressure on opposing ball handlers and plays the passing lanes well. Does a nice job of breaking out for easy layups and highlight reel dunks.

Has good handles and a great ability to beat one on one defense. Has natural point guard instincts and does a good job of drawing the defense and finding the open man, or taking it all the way to the cup. Uses an inside-out dribble and change of speeds to get the defender off balance and uses his speed to get to the rim.

A big time dunker who can really get off the floor and has the length and body control to throw downs some impressive dunks.

Cons
Very thin and lacking upper body strength.

Has okay but not great form on his jumper and it remains to be seen if he can make 3 point shooting a strength of his game.

Comparisons
Tyreke Evans

Projection: possible first round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft
