2016 Draft Profile - Juan Hernangomez

Strengths : Juan Hernangomez is one of the top international prospects in this class. His play in the Spanish ACB League has turned heads as he has been as, or more, productive at a similar age than future NBA players such as Nikola Mirotic, Ricky Rubio, Serge Ibaka, and Kristaps Porzingis.

Hernangomez is something of a tweener forward. He has ideal height for a power forward with solid length and a frame that should fill out as he gets older. He is an aggressive player who excels at attacking the basket and drawing fouls while also shooting nearly 36 percent from three-point range.

He also has a great motor and is constantly flying around the court. He competes on the boards and has all of the tools to become a solid defender in time.

Weaknesses : Hernangomez’s aggression and energy, arguably his biggest strength, can also hurt him at times. He can try to force the action offensively and do everything himself and doesn’t look to pass the ball nearly enough as someone with his ability should.

The most work for Hernangomez, however, must be done defensively. He doesn’t quite have the strength to deal with more physical power forwards and isn’t quite quick enough to stay with NBA-level wings either. As he matures he should be able to turn into more of a positive on that end.

He will also need to become a more consistent shooter, especially off the dribble. He is solid in spot-up situations, but his ball-handling must improve to make him more effective.
