Miles BridgesHt/Wt: 6' 8" / 230 lbs
Team: Michigan State
2017 Draft Profile - Miles BridgesStrengths: Miles Bridges is a tremendous athlete who possesses a great combination of power, body control, and explosiveness. His big body frame makes it difficult for defenders to defend him when he is driving towards the basket.
His nice shooting touch gives a good indication he can develop into a good shooter in the NBA. He has good basketball instincts that help him with his passing ability. He can also use either hand effectively while dribbling or finishing.
He also attacks the glass well. His body helps him get down in the paint and battle for rebounds. His anticipation skills and high motor allows him to make plays all over the court.
Weaknesses: He needs to work on developing consistency with his jump shot. That has to with mechanics that he needs to address before he can become a consistent scorer. Also has difficulty making shots off the dribble. Against some stiff competition he will need to figure out different ways to get the ball in the hoop.
Improving his ball-handling skills will also benefit him greatly at the NBA level. Because of his lack of handles, he struggles in isolation situations and tends to turn the ball over when he over dribbles.
On the defensive side he needs to show he can defend the wing positions well so he can make the move to the perimeter permanent.
