2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Austin Freeman


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-3, 227

School: Georgetown, Senior


Strengths:
  • Three-point shooting
  • Catch and shoot
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Moves well off the ball
  • Knows how to create enough space to get his shot off
  • Free throw shooter
  • Using his body to help him score in the lane
  • Controls his body when attacking the basket
  • Not afraid of contact
  • Strength



    Weaknesses:
  • Undersized for an NBA two guard
  • Ability to take defenders off the bounce
  • Lacks ideal athleticism for the next level
  • Perimeter defense against quicker guards

    Summary: Freeman's ability to light it up from deep will earn him looks at the next level. However, his lack of ideal NBA athleticism and size are major deterrents to Freeman making a living in the NBA. He figures to be in the second-round or undrafted range of the 2011 NBA Draft.

    Player Comparison: DeShawn Stevenson. Think the current version of Stevenson who is late in his career and relies on his three-point shooting to earn him minutes. Stevenson fits the mold of an NBA two-guard better because he is more athletic and taller than Freeman, but the Hoya will have to find a way to shoot his way onto an NBA roster.
