NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
|POSITION: SF||FROM: Stanford||HT: 6-9 1/2||WT: 215|
|BORN: 4/28/99||YEAR: So||WING: 7-1 3/4||REACH: NA|
KZ is a freakishly long athlete with a ridiculous 7-2 wingspan and a long, wiry frame. He’s built along the lines of a longer Trevor Ariza or Bruno Caboclo (but way more skilled than Bruno).
KZ surprises with his ball-handling ability, as he’s able to dribble in traffic and drive the ball in tight spaces. He’s got a quick first step and his length around the rim gives him an unfair advantage.
His three point shooting has gone to a new level this year (although he still struggles from the FT line) and if this small sample size pans out, he’ll have a long and successful NBA career.
While not yet being a polished defender KZ has all the tools to be a standout on defense. He’s very thin but an NBA conditioning program will help bring him up to strength.
- Trevor Ariza with an extra gear.
- A quick-twitch TayShaun Prince.
