2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jordan Hamilton


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-7, 226

School: Texas, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Natural scorer
  • Pure shooter with deep range
  • Catach and shoot ability
  • Quick release
  • Nice pull-up jump shot
  • Can take defenders off the dribble
  • Explosive in the open floor
  • Ability to post-up smaller defenders
  • Ideal size for an NBA wing player



    Weaknesses:
  • Shot selection, too often a chucker
  • Relies on his jump shot too much, needs to become a more aggressive driver
  • Plays too much 1-on-1
  • Streaky shooter who sometimes checks out mentally if his shot is not falling
  • A natural talent but still needs to better understand what else is going on on the floor
  • Free throw shooting

    Summary: Hamilton has a natural ability to score the basketball but has gotten the reputation of being a chucker. Based on talent alone though, he could potentially be a lottery pick in 2011 especially if he hones his all-around game.

    Player Comparison: Jason Richardson. Richardson is a talented all-around scorer who loves to shoot the three ball just like Hamilton. Hamilton has the potential to be a Richardson-type player who would flourish in a run-and-gun style of offense like Richardson has in both Golden State and Phoenix.
