Zach LaVineHt/Wt: 6' 5" / 180 lbs
2014 Draft Profile - Zach LaVineZach Lavine has the game that scouts drool over. Unlike other top prospects, Lavine is unable to showcase as much by sharing the floor with other NBA caliber teammates. Somewhat of a late bloomer, Lavine was raised as a PG who can score, he hit a growth spurt to ideal height and length of a SG (6ft5). Lavine has the handle of a PG and can take his man off the dribble or pull up from deep range. He can also look like a true SG who can run off screens and hit 3s from deep with a beautiful release. Zach plays above the rim, can also slash when there is a crease in the defense or finish in transition. He plays with a quiet confidence.
Zach is almost 19, needs to add weight. Is not showing great effort on defense or getting experience to carry his team in college. Also needs to work on his off hand.
Zach has an All Star ceiling for sure but going into the league he might struggle to develop if he is not a scoring option. There is a number of star players that he can compare to; Russell Westbrook, Monte Ellis, Jamal Crawford, even Steph Curry.
