2010 Draft Profile - Elias HarrisStrengths: Finishes in traffic with the best of them. Very good back to the basket game. Extremely athletic with very good feet. Plays very good perimeter defense. Uses his length to his advantage and is very physical. Improving midrange game. Very good foot speed.
Weaknesses: Despite clearly being a three he is forced to play the four for the Zags. This leads to a lack of experience handling the ball and creating his own shot. Those are his two biggest weaknesses. Other than that, he also struggles from the line because of his poor form (very quick release and almost one handed). He has an awkward shooting form which might lead to him struggling to get his shot off in the NBA. He also needs to recognize who he needs to pick up on defense quicker after a switch as well as while in a zone (ironically he defends the pick and roll very well though). Slightly older than other Freshman prospects. Relies too much on his athleticism rather than boxing out properly when rebounding.
Outlook: Harris is a rising star and if he can continue to improve he will be a multiple time all star.
