2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: JaJuan Johnson


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 215

School: Purdue, Senior


Strengths:
  • Athleticism
  • Uses his length to be an effective rebounder and shot blocker
  • Inside/outside threat
  • Great mid-range game
  • High release on his shot which makes it difficult to block
  • Three-point range
  • Utilizes hook shot
  • Turnaround jumper on the block
  • Great touch around the basket
  • Runs the floor well
  • Dangerous in pick-and-roll or pick-and-pop situations



    Weaknesses:
  • Strength
  • Physicality
  • Ball-handling
  • Still trying to become a reliable three-point threat

    Summary: Johnson has shown tremendous development during his time at Purdue growing from a skinny, project big man to an All-American candidate. He has put on some weight during that time but his lack of strength and physicality is the biggest thing holding him back in NBA scouts' views. Still, Johnson is a safe bet to be a late first-round pick, and if he falls into the second round, it should not be long before he is scooped off the board.

    Player Comparison: Channing Frye. Johnson lacks the strength that Frye had when he entered the NBA, but is more athletic. Frye found his niche with the Suns due to his outside shooting which is a skill Johnson possesses as well. Johnson is not going to mix it up down low at the next level and will have to rely on his athleticism and jump shot like Frye has in Phoenix.
