NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
After a heroic march madness performance Johnny Juzang tested the 2021 draft waters before deciding to return to UCLA for his junior season.
Juzang will look to carry the momentum over to the new year and continue to develop all the aspects of his game. He’s a complete player but his biggest NBA value is with his shot making ability.
Juzang might not blow you away with athleticism but he’s got a good frame and good size for a wing and sneaky quickness. His handles are advanced and help him blow by defenders despite not having an elite first step.
- A natural born scorer who just gets buckets
- Scores from inside and out, has a great shooting stroke and deep range.
- Has an advanced mid range game and can score in many ways, using quick release jumpers, floaters and scoop shots to score in the lane.
- Really knows how to find his shot and is a good off the ball player.
- Excels in catch and shoot situations and can also get his shot off the dribble.
- Has nice size for a wing with broad shoulders and decent strength.
- Isn’t an elite run/jump athlete
- Has average foot-speed
- Needs to get stronger
- Similar to Dillon Brooks but more advanced at this stage in his career.
