NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
It is with a very heavy heart that we share the news that Kentucky guard Terrence Clarke has passed away on 4/22/21. Clarke was a sensational talent with such a bright future ahead of him, both on and off the basketball court. Our prayers are with the Clarke family and all of those who are grieving this loss. Rest in Peace, Terrence.
2021 NBA Draft prospect Terrence Clarke is a big scoring guard with elite talent but an unrefined game. He’s had an up and down start to his Kentucky career and his draft stock has taken a bit of hit. He’s shown flashes of bit time scoring ability and plus athleticism but his decision making has been a bit lacking and he’s not looking good as a primary ball handler.
He was once considered a likely lottery pick but could be more of a mid to late first rounder, or even fall to the early second round. He’s got a lot more development to do before being able to contribute at the NBA level, but the talent is definitely there.
- Is a next level athlete, even by NBA standards.
- He’s got a legit NBA frame already, with plus athleticism and length.
- Is a pure scorer with a smooth jumper, a nice release and a feel for getting his shot off.
- Can score off the dribble and has a lot of separation moves.
- Has a polished left hand with an impressive array of moves with either hand.
- Can be a bit wild on his drives to the basket and sometimes forces the issue.
- Isn’t yet a knockdown shooter.
- Isn’t much of a playmaker or facilitator.
- Tracy McGrady
- J.R. Smith
