2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Gordon Hayward


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-9, 207

School: Butler, Junior


Strengths:
  • Athleticism
  • Leaping ability
  • Quick off the bounce when attacking the rim
  • Body control when driving to the basket
  • Perimeter shooter
  • Quick release
  • Does a good job of finding open space on the offensive end
  • Free throw shooting
  • Length helps him on the glass and defense



    Weaknesses:
  • Needs to add strength
  • Not very physical
  • Inconsistent three-point shooter
  • Will be a liability defensively on the perimeter due to a lack of lateral quickness

    Summary: Hayward has been scouts' radars since the season began due to his athleticism and versatility on the wing. Helping guide Butler to the Final Four has helped Hayward's stock and it is now realistic that some "experts" believe he's a lottery lock. I certainly would not go that far, but he will more than likely be off the board before the 20s.

    Player Comparison: Dorrell Wright. Wright is a lengthy, athletic wing player who is not very physical just like Hayward. The Bulldog sophomore needs to add some muscle and become more physical as well as improve his outside shooting, or he may be nothing more than a bench player like Wright.
