2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Luke Babbitt


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-9, 218

School: Nevada, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Natural scorer
  • Three point shooting
  • Catch and shoot ability
  • Effective inside/outside game
  • Can take bigger defenders off dribble
  • Back to the basket game allows him to post up smaller defenders
  • Good body control when getting into the lane
  • Court vision as a passer
  • Above average ball handler
  • Almost automatic at the free throw line
  • High motor
  • Basketball IQ



    Weaknesses:
  • Long way to go as a defender
  • Not very physical
  • Lateral quickness
  • Settles for jump shot too often
  • Lacks great explosiveness

    Summary: Babbitt has somehow gone from a borderline first-round pick to a guy who likely won't fall out of the lottery which makes his decision to turn pro seem like a no-brainer. He is a tremendous scorer due to his inside/outside game, but will be a liability at the defensive end at the next level. I don't think he is worthy of a lottery pick, but he has a lot of buzz around his name right now.

    Player Comparison: Danilo Gallinari. Babbitt has drawn comparisons to Warrior legend Chris Mullin likely because they are both lefty sharpshooters. I think Gallinari is a better match because they are both great outside shooters who don't have tremendous athleticism. Babbitt is a better creator and ball handler than Gallinari, but will be known for his outside shooting at the next level.
