NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
Fisher is an elite level youngster who shows flashes of greatness. His size and athletic ability are already too much to handle at the high school level, as he’s an above the rim player who can jump out of the gym and overpower opponents.
He’s a versatile player, able to play on or off the ball. He projects as a high scoring wing/primary initiator at the NBA level. He shows good court awareness and heads-up passing ability while also being able to take over games with his scoring.
We’ve been projecting him as a future NBA small forward but his coach Ro Russell tells us he’s a combo guard, which is where he’s been playing in high school and AAU ball.
Fisher’s finishing ability is special. He’s got the strength to finish through contact, the explosiveness to put defenders on a poster and a nice array of up and under layups. He’s got hang time and lots of creativity in the air.
The outside shot is coming along well and will be a major weapon for him going forward.
He’s a committed defender who gets down in his stance and gives good effort. He’s got quick hands, reads passing lanes well and jumps out in transition quickly, always looking to bring the house down with a breakaway dunk.
The sky is the limit.
