NBA Comparison: Pascal Siakam

Strengths: 6’6 athletic wing … Good length with a 6’11 wingspan … High-level and explosive athlete. Finishes plays above the rim that most of his peers can’t contest. Quick off the ground and translates his athleticism well into game situations with good body control and hang time. Finishes with either hand in traffic … Versatile skillset. Effective in both half-court and transition … Good scoring ability and his ability to create has made great improvement over the past year as the game has slowed down for him and instincts have taken over. Averaged 9 points per game at 50% FG% over the Nike EYBL in 2018 and averaged 22.7 points per game at 48.9% FG% in 2019 … Shooting range extends to the 3PT line and he can hit shots off the dribble … Solid ball handler and playmaker with ability as an initiator, showing positive strides making reads with the ball. Passes out of drives and midway through his attack when the help defense comes … Quick burst with the ball. Good dribble penetrator and slasher going to his right or left. Sells crossover and changes direction well with the ball. Fearless driver and isn’t afraid to throw down dunks in traffic … Good tools and versatility as a defender. Good timing and elevation when blocking shots … Strong build and strength level, yet still fluid. Finishes and plays well through contact. Draws fouls at a good rate. Shot 5.7 free throws per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Stays active off the ball … Good confidence and aggression … Has shown noticeable improvement in multiple areas of his game in the past year and his skillset is catching up his natural ability …

Weaknesses: Can be too quick with the trigger and settles for a lot of contested threes. Shot selection overall can improve and although he’s been efficient from the floor, he’s very high-volume. Attempted 17.2 shots per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Can improve consistency as a 3PT shooter. Shot 29.8% 3PT% at 7.8 attempts per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Can improve as a free throw shooter. Shot 55.2% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2018 and 62.7% FT% in 2019 … Doesn’t stand out as a rebounder as you would think from someone with his size and ability. Averaged 3.7 rebounds per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 and 5.4 rebounds per game in 2019 … Although playmaking has improved, he can work on limiting the turnovers. Tries to make the home run play at times. Averaged 3.2 assists to 3.5 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Can show more commitment on the defensive end, tends to coast a bit and can get caught watching …

Outlook: Transferred from Our Savior New American to The Patrick School … 2019 All-EYBL: Second Team and Underclass Team … Played in the 2018 Underclassman All-American Game and earned MVP of the 2019 Underclassman All-American Game in 2019 with 21 points …
