NBA Draft 2021 Jalen Suggs Scout Report

PnR offense – Great at getting to the rim and converting with almost 64% makes. Good of pulls up from the middle for three, but bad everywhere else.

Transition Offense– converts almost 70% of his attempts at the rim in transition.  Tends to pull up from three in transition but he has been ice cold with only 2 makes from 13 attempts.

Spot up Shooting – Great from the middle, again, but really bad( below 30%) from other spots on the field.

Iso Scoring– shown a lot of flashes. The team isn’t structured to let him do his thing. But made 5/6 ISO three’s this season. Small sample size, but really encouraging going forward.

Great at generating dunk from cuts and offensive rebounds, but not always the most active cutter. Lob threat.

Average long range shooter, 35% from three, with and OK volume of 6 attempts per 100 possesions, a good free throw shooter with 73% and generating a respectable 7 free throws per 100 possessions. Good body control through contact.

His assist to turnover ratio is really promising with 1.65. Good handle and vision. Capable of quick precise passes in tight windows with both hands. But can get flustered with double teams. Great PnR decision maker, especially when it comes to finding the roll man.

Rebounds very well for his position and height, a potential triple double threat in the pros.

 Consistent player both in terms of effort and production. NBA ready body.

Great anticipation and reading of the game on the defensive end. Incredible eye for the steal, could be a league leader in steals for years to come. Aggressive man to man defender. Stay in front of players both in ISO and in PnR situations, bothers spot up shooters.

The Heaven Version of Jalen Suggs

He might produce 80% of peak Russell Westbrook traditional stats, with better shooting, around 37%, 38% from three on good volume and be a All NBA defender.

Heaven version Stats

25-8-8 with 2.5 steals per game and an assist to turnover ratio of 2.5

The Hell Version of Jalen Suggs

The shot is even worse than in college, which leads to lack of attempts at the rim and free throws. Still a good defender but more of a liability on offense. Third guard for a good team.

Hell Version Stats 12-3-3 with around 30% from three.
