Draft Notes

Matthew Cleveland is a shooting guard with ideal size at 6-7 with a long, rangy frame and close to elite physical tools.

Cleveland is an all around talent. His offensive game shows a ton of promise, with the ability to score in isolation – and he tends to find his shots within the flow of the offense. He’s got the handles and the footwork for a nice step-back jumper which should become a real weapon for him going forward. Has a nice pull up jumper.

Overall his shooting form is compact, with elbow in and very promising. He doesn’t need to be a high volume, high usage guy to be effective.

He’s a long athlete with nice leaping ability and he plays far above the rim, making it all look easy. He’s got good burst into the lane and can finish with either hand.

Has a lot of upside as a defender thanks to his size and length, quickness and heady play.
