Deyonta Davis NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-10 – Power Forward – Michigan State

A raw and promising PF with intriguing upside. Well built for the next level.

Has really good length, strength and fluidity. Gets off the ground well and has good coordination. Has a quick first and second jump.

A solid post defender who protects the rim well. Shows good timing on weak-side help and has a good feel for defensive rotations. Has a nose for the ball and rebounds out of his area well.

Still developing as a post player but shows a lot of potential. Has a nice face-up game with good form on his jumper and range out to 18.

Runs the floor like a wing. Has good hands and catches the ball in transition well.

Lacking in experience and is raw and unrefined. Doesn’t yet have consistent moves in the paint and lacks a go-to move.

Needs to bulk up. Is too foul prone and needs to play with better discipline.

Must improve as a free throw shooter and continue to get more consistent from mid range.

Reminds of Al Horford with his ability to face up and score from two levels. Looks like a higher upside version of Richaun Holmes.

Projection: lottery pick in the 2016 or 2017 NBA Draft
