2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Chris Singleton


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-9, 227

School: Florida State, Junior


Strengths:
  • Difference maker on the defensive end
  • Can guard on the perimeter or in the post
  • Great reaction in jumping the passing lane
  • Athleticism
  • Length
  • Shot blocking
  • Solid rebounder
  • Plays with high energy at all times
  • Terrific in transition
  • Good passer
  • Range out to the three-point line



    Weaknesses:
  • Ball handling
  • Taking defenders off the dribble in one-on-one situations
  • Inconsistent outside shooter
  • Too often falls in love with that inconsistent jumper
  • Handling contact in the lane

    Summary: Singleton really knows how to an impact a game with his all-around ability on defense which is somewhat a rarity in the NBA. He is not a great scorer and probably never will a star player but should be a great complementary piece to a roster. He could be a late-lottery prospect if he were to declare for the 2011 NBA Draft this summer.

    Player Comparison: Shawn Marion. For a major stretch of his career, Marion was known for his defensive versatility which is where Singleton will thrive once he gets to the league. Marion benefitted playing alongside Steven Nash, but was never an overly talented offensive player, which is an area of weakness for Singleton as well.
