2016 Draft Profile - Buddy Hield

Strengths: Buddy Hield is one of the best players in college basketball today, and is an extremely intriguing prospect despite already being a senior.

Hield is one of the best scorers in the nation and gets his points in a variety of ways. He has made vast improvements in his senior season as a three-point shooter and is also getting to the free throw line more. He is a good rebounder for his position and is a high IQ player, constantly reading the defense and making the right plays.

Defensively, he can potentially defend both guard spots. He has solid quickness and athleticism and works extremely hard on that end of the floor. He is a competitor who never takes a night off.

Weaknesses: One worry about Hield is that he is a player who doesnít seem to have that one standout NBA skill, but rather is simply solid across the board.

His shooting has made a big leap in his senior year, but itís difficult to know whether that level of accuracy will sustain itself at the next level. He will also need to attack the basket more consistently.

Physically, he is slightly undersized for the shooting guard position, though his wingspan does help to make up for his lack of height. While he is a competitor, whether or not he has the size to guard NBA-level shooting guards, or the speed to keep up with point guards is a question mark.
