2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Lazar Hayward


Position: Guard/Forward

Size: 6-6, 225

School: Marquette, Senior


Strengths:
  • Very good spot-up shooter with a solid mid-range game and ability to knock down the triple
  • Soft touch around the rim
  • Uses his strength to back down weaker defenders
  • Great free-throw shooter
  • Due to a lack of size for Marquette, played a lot of power forward and is more physical than his height and weight would suggest
  • Doesn't back down from bigger opponents
  • Solid rebounder with great instincts on the offensive glass
  • Very coachable and rarely plays outside of his strengths



    Weaknesses:
  • Doesn't have a true position at the next level as he is too small to be a power forward and not quick enough to be a true wing player
  • A poor ball-handler who too often relies on his jump shot rather than trying to take a defender off the dribble
  • Tends to be out of control, putting his head down and committing a charge or turning the ball over when driving to the basket
  • Lacks great lateral quickness which makes him a defensive liability on the perimeter against quicker players

    Summary: Hayward has been a solid complementary player at Marquette the past three seasons and his NBA future may depend on how he transitions to the focal point of the Golden Eagles' offense.

    Player Comparison: Jared Dudley. Like Dudley, Hayward is a crafty scorer and solid rebounder but not athletically gifted like other NBA wing players.
