2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Armon Johnson


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-3, 195

School: Nevada, Junior


Strengths:
  • Thrives at attacking the basket
  • Athleticism and explosiveness at the rim for a point guard
  • Creates for teammates with drive and dish
  • Quick with his dribble especially in the open floor
  • A lefty who is just as effective going to his right
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Can post up smaller defenders
  • Uses length to his advantage



    Weaknesses:
  • Struggles from beyond the arc
  • Below-average free throw shooter
  • Settles for pull-up jumper too often
  • Needs to make more of a commitment on the defensive end given his natural quickness

    Summary: Despite a weak class of point guards, Johnson is still a bubble first-round pick. He is at his best when attacking the basket and would thrive in an up-tempo offense. If he were a more consistent outside shooter, Johnson would likely be a first-round lock. Instead, he may fall into the second round and regret his decision to leave school early.

    Player Comparison: Marcus Banks. Coming out of college, Banks was known more for his speed and athleticism as a point guard, but never for his ability to shoot the basketball. Johnson is in the same mold that he is incredibly quick off the bounce, at times showing a Rajon Rando-like ability to get into the lane. If Johnson can develop a more consistent outside shot, he should have a more successful professional career than Banks.
