2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Xavier Henry


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-6, 220

School: Kansas, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Talented all-around scorer
  • Can stroke it from deep
  • Nice mid-range game
  • Smooth catch and shooter
  • Creates his own shot on the perimeter
  • Effective slasher
  • Strong finisher
  • Has tremendous body control when on the drive
  • Great strength and athleticism helps him on the boards
  • Lets the game come to him for the most part



    Weaknesses:
  • Needs to make more of a commitment on the defensive end
  • Doesn't move his feet really well on defense
  • Tends to play 1-on-1 too often
  • Must become a better ball-handler

    Summary: His 27-point debut for Kansas proved why Henry was one of the top five recruits in the 2009 class. Playing for one of the top teams in country should only help his exposure for NBA scouts and he will benefit from playing with talented future NBA'ers like Cole Aldrich, Sherron Collins and Tyshawn Taylor. If he is a lottery lock (which seems to be the case), Henry is likely one-and-done at Kansas.

    Player Comparison: Paul Pierce. Henry has the ability to be an All-Star-caliber player like Pierce. Pierce was never the quickest or most explosive player, but he has always been a very crafty scorer whether attacking the basket or shooting from the perimeter. Henry is in a similar mold. He has an NBA-ready body like Pierce did coming out of Kansas. Both guys can also effectively play on the block because of their size and strength for a two-guard.
