Scouting Analysis

Players Scouting Analytics by tirdodbehbehani . Position :Small Forward [SF]

OVERALL
Lateral Quickness
06.00
Good but not exceptional lateral quickness and footwork. Maintains balance well when shuffling from side to side
Speed
05.50
Decent first step for his size. Not particularly explosive, but shows some flashes of potential here. Doesn't really change speeds at all. Modest vertical
Athleticism
00.00
size
00.00
Versatility
00.65
Arguably the most versatile defender in this year's class, can adeptly switch 1-4. Has the length and quickness to defend on the perimeter and the size and strength to hold his own inside. Offensively, he is a bit limited here due to lack of consistent shot creation and below average ball handling
Motor
00.00
Rebounding
05.00
Gets himself in good position when going for rebounds. Fights hard for inside positioning, uses hips to box out well. Rebounding numbers depressed in UVA's system, can expect them to improve in new situation
Instincts/Awareness
07.00
Patient player, often employs fake to buy him more time and create space. High Basketball IQ - sees the floor well and makes some really great reads. Very conservative player, almost to a fault, although some of this is a byproduct of UVA's defense
Character/ Leadership/ Competitiveness
04.00
Type of player who leads by example, doesn't seem particularly vocal
Intangibles
07.00
Has all the fundamentals down pat, High Basketball IQ, High Motor
OFFENSE
Shot Selection & Efficiency
00.00
Shot Range
00.00
Passing Ability
06.00
Doesn't attempt many high-difficulty passes in part due to his conservative nature, but very high Passing IQ. Most of his assists are to open shooters. Recognizes weak side help early and is able to quickly find open corner shooter. Can't really make pocket passes
Ball Handling & Security
05.00
Doesn't have an advanced handle, mostly a straight line driver when slashing to the rim. Really strong jab step, uses this to create space to drive to his right. Much more comfortable going to his right, but can go left on occasion.
Playmaking Ability
00.00
Free Throws
07.90
Sports a 78.7 FT% with a .423 FTr. Draws fouls through slashing
DEFFENSE
On-Ball Defense
00.00
N/A
Off-Ball Defense
00.00
Disruptiveness
06.00
Very conservative defender, doesn't gamble often. A bit worrying that his Stock% has decreased from his Freshman to Sophomore year, but still should increase once the reins are loosened in the NBA. Defends well without fouling, which is a very valuable team defense attribute. Despite lack of aggressiveness, very fundamentally sound defender who is (for the most part) tough to get around
POSITIONAL
Catch & Shoot
00.00
Shot Creator
00.00
Finishing at the Rim
07.00
Has the physicality and length to finish through contact here. Almost always pump fakes before going up. Uses advanced footwork to get to the rim well
Getting to FT Line
00.00
Off Ball Play
05.00
Relegated to mostly just standing in the weak side corner when he doesn't have the ball due to UVA's system. Projects to be a dangerous off-ball player when given more freedom due to his outside shooting ability and high basketball iq in the NBA
Running the Floor
00.00
Strengths
Defense, Outside Shooting, Slashing, Basketball IQ
Weaknesses
Shot Creation, Ball Handling, Aggressiveness
Overall Analysis
De'Andre Hunter is a highly talented 3-and-D Wing from the University of Virginia. Hunter has great instincts and is a very fundamentally sound player who excels at doing the little things that ultimately win basketball games. Hunter is a bit challenging to evaluate because his role is repressed at Virginia; he's not used as much as a player as talented as him usually is. Hunter shows flashes of this overwhelming potential at times, with powerful drives to the rim and fantastic shot contests. While Hunter would do very well to reach this ceiling, Hunter looks a bit like Kawhi Leonard sans the ball handling ability. If Hunter can develop his ball handling and increase his aggressiveness, the sky is the limit for him.
