NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
Chris Livingston is a big shooting guard/wing with a lot of burst and above the rim ability. He didn’t have the most productive season at Kentucky but has really good tools and still has a lot of upside to grow into.
He has really good athleticism and an NBA body with broad shoulders, very good upper body strength and a lot of speed.
Livingston is at his best in a fast paced game and he’s a nightmare to defend when he gets the ball in the open court. He’s got lateral agility, an attacking style and he plays above the rim with ease. He’s got a creative layup package with hang time, up and under’s and the ability to finish through contact.
Livingston is bouncy when jumping off of one foot or two and can bring the house down with his dunking ability.
Isn’t yet much of a 3pt shooter. Has decent touch around the rim and from the line and should develop into a capable floor spacer in time.
Livingston doesn’t always show the best body language, something that needs to be cleaned up if he’s going to excel at the next levels.
Needs to work on finishing with his left.
