Amile Jefferson NBA Draft Scouting Report

NBA Draft Prospect Amile Jefferson

6-9 – Power Forward – Duke

Smooth power forward with good skill level but lacks ideal size.

Not a flashy player but does all of the little things well.  Rebounds, plays defense, sets screens and moves the ball well.

Is developing a face up game with range to 16 feet. Moves well and can beat the defender off the dribble with his quickness. Doesn’t explode to the rim but has a knack for scoring around the basket.

Lacks true power forward size and strength and could be a ‘tweener’ at the next level.  Needs to play with better intensity and develop a mean streak.

Projection: mid to late first round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft
