NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT

Sharpe is a big, quick, bouncy wing prospect with long arms and all the tools you want to see in a high level NBA prospect. After sitting out a season at Kentucky he projects as a possible top 4-10 pick in the 2022 draft.
Sharpe wasn’t a big name in high school basketball until the end of his career and has been flying up the rankings all the way to the no.1 overall spot in his class. He joined the Kentucky program mid season and didn’t play any minutes.
The first thing that stands out about Sharpe is his size. He’s got a very strong build with a lot of lower body strength and an overall very solid frame. He’s got ideal height for a wing with good length as well.
While I wouldn’t say he’s an elite level athlete Sharpe has all the tools to be elite at the next level. He’s got a quick first step and gets to the rim with ease and can really finish through contact.
He’s a great slasher and a good off ball cutter who always looks to take advantage of his nice finishing ability by making moves to the rim. He’s a ferocious dunker who can bring the house down with his monster dunking ability. Is very dangerous on backdoor cuts.
Sharpe is still developing his ball handling, play-making and outside shooting game but his progression over the years has been impressive and he’s well on his way to being a knockdown shooter. He also has the makings of a nice pull up jump shot and gets good rhythm with the dribble before rising up for the shot.
He’s not a pure shooter but shows a lot of promise and can be streaky hot at times.
Can play a little wild at times and over shoot the ball. His shot selection could use some work, but that should come when playing alongside NBA talent.
- Has some Brandon Roy in his game
