2017 Draft Profile - Josh Hart

Strengths: Josh Hart is ranked amongst the top three NBA prospects in the Big East and rightfully so. Although listed as a shooting guard, this 6’ 5.5” player is not afraid of physicality and big men. On the offensive end of the floor, he looks to attack the basket with the ball in his hands. He has great footwork around the rim, using crevices and maneuvers to elude his defenders.

When on the floor, Hart truly resembles a team-player mentality, although Villanova has counted on him to be the main player this season. He has knack for attack the glass, jumping with the best of them to help his big men on the boards. While driving to the rim, he also is very capable of making the open pass to his teammates, for easy assists when he is drawing attention.

Has a nice shooting touch for a guard, which is desperately need in today’s NBA. His soft touch will be effective from the free throw line and field goal wise, as he can be efficient for a team while not taking too many shots. As a ball handler, is able to take the ball coast to coast and can draw in defenders to feed to his teammates.

Weaknesses: With Villanova demanding high volume output from him, his shot selection can at times be a little forced. While many draft prospects think they can score on any college defender, he’ll need to adjust to the NBA and being able to capitalize on the best shot available for the team.

One adjustment with the NBA that may affect his game is the physicality leap between NCAA and the NBA. It will be harder for him to finish at the rim while playing against the vertical and lengthy big men in the NBA, but his finesse touch around the rim will certainly help.

His ball handling looks like it could use a bit of polishing, if he were to take on a distribution role in a NBA offense.
