Draft Notes

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.

Comparisons

  • Tracy McGrady
  • J.R. Smith
