Overview
Hachimura is a physical specimen who shows flashes of big time upside. He has all the physical tools
to be a big time player and is starting to put it all together on the court.

Strengths
  • Rui has an NBA build with great strength, long arms and awesome coordination
  • A menace in transition who can out run most other players on the floor
  • Has a really strong dribble drive game, using his bulk and quickness to get into the lane
  • Scores well in the lane and has a relentless motor on the offensive glass
  • Can rip and run, taking the defensive rebound and turning it into transition
  • Has become a solid free throw shooter
  • Has all the tools to be a standout defender with switch-ability
Weaknesses
  • Very limited range on his jumper and isn't a threat from 3 point land
  • Could take some time to impact in the NBA
  • Lacks consistency. Will light it up one game and disappear the next
Comparisons
  • Reminds of a stronger Wilson Chandler
Projection: mid first to early second round pick in the 2018 or 2019 NBA Draft
