Harry GilesHt/Wt: 6'11" / 225 lbs
2017 Draft Profile - Harry GilesStrengths: The sample size at Duke is small for the No. 1 college recruit of the 2016 class as he has played just 10 minutes per game after coming back from a knee injury, but he still has the intangibles of an NBA player.
By far Gilesí best attribute is his athleticism. His length and athleticism help him finish with aggression at the basket, but more so it helps him on the defensive end of the floor.
He is capable of being an elite NBA defender. He can rebound, box out, heís quick enough to guard anyone on the floor, and his length allows him to block shots with ease.
Weaknesses: His injury history has to be a scare for NBA scouts as he has already torn both of his ACLís. With someone who plays as athletically as Giles, injuries will always be something to think about.
While he has the ability to score around the basket with ease, Giles has no jump shot whatsoever. Forget about stretching the floor and shooting threes, Giles does not even have the ability to shoot a midrange jumper.
Defenders will sag off Giles because they know he does not yet have the ability to shoot, making him easy to guard in the pros.
He is also not a very good passer yet, something he will surely need to work on if he does not develop some sort of jump shot.
