Overview
Matthew Hurt is a talented offensive player who has a sweet 3 point shot and great scoring ability. He
impacts all aspects of the game but the thing that will get him drafted will be his outside shooting and scoring ability. If he can hold his own defensively at the NBA level he'll have a long career. But first he'll have to add strength to a thin frame and develop his athleticism.

Strengths
  • A very advanced shooter with a quick, accurate shot that projects well to the NBA level
  • Gets his 3 point shot off quickly and can shoot from range
  • An overall crafty scorer who knows how to find space and move without the ball
  • An excellent free throw shooter
  • Has good court vision and is a great passer, using his height to survey the floor and find cutters
  • Although he's not a powerful post player he's got great footwork and good moves in the paint
Weaknesses
  • Hurt is very thin and lacks muscle, especially in his upper body.
  • He'll get pushed around in the post and might not be a factor on the boards against NBA PF/Cs
  • Has average foot-speed and average athleticism and will likely struggle to guard NBA wings
  • Does not project as a guy who can switch the pick and roll
Comparisons
  • TJ Leaf
  • Kyle Wiltjer
Projection: possible first round pick in the 2020 or 2021 NBA Draft
