Josiah James NBA Draft Scouting Report





PG SG  6-6  200  Tennessee
Charleston, SC



  Standing Reach


 9/5/00 6-9 NA  NA

Josiah is a big combo guard with broad shoulders and a well put-together frame. He's effective on or off the ball and could slide over to the wing at the NBA level.

He's got a smooth lefty jumper and gets good elevation when he shoots. It looks the part of an NBA shot but he needs to get more consistent from long range.

Josiah is a very good passer who plays with his head up and seems to know where his teammates are at all times. He's got natural lead guard instincts, knowing when to push the tempo and when to rein it in.

Tennessee got a good one.
