2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jereme Richmond


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-7, 205

School: Illinois, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Athleticism
  • Length
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Great in transition
  • Mid-range game
  • Versatile defender
  • Brings energy to the floor
  • Great upside



    Weaknesses:
  • Outside shooting
  • More of an athlete than fundamental basketball player
  • Experience
  • Character concerns
  • Needs to get stronger
  • Isolation game

    Summary: Due to a rollercoaster season both on and off the floor, Richmond's journey to the NBA was sped up. He is not ready to be a contributor in the NBA but is still considered a borderline first-round pick due his potential, as well as the fact that the 2011 Draft class is very weak.

    Player Comparison: Jamario Moon. Moon experienced a crazy ride before he got to the NBA, and Richmond may be in for a similar path. Moon left college early and bounced around in the NBDL and foreign leagues before finally finding a spot in the NBA. Both guys are extremely athletic, but like Moon, Richmond is not ready to be a rotational player in the NBA. If Richmond can realize his potential sooner than Moon did, he should have a better career. However, that is the question mark surrounding Richmond at this point of his career.
