2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Tobias Harris


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-8, 225

School: Tennessee, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Inside/outside threat
  • Three-point range
  • Handles the ball in an almost point forward type role
  • Board and then lead the break
  • Passer
  • Can take bigger defenders off the bounce
  • Able to post up smaller opponents
  • Great touch around the basket
  • Guards the perimeter or the post
  • Good rebounder
  • Length
  • Maturity



    Weaknesses:
  • Needs to be more aggressive on the glass
  • Relies too much on his finesse rather than being assertive at the rim
  • Has to be stronger with the ball
  • Lacks a killer instinct

    Summary: Because of his comibation of size, ability to handle the basketball and inside/outside game, Harris is an intriguing draft prospect. He would be a safe bet to go in the first round this summer ranging anywhere from the mid-teens to the late 20s. He may be better served returning to school though because I am not sure he makes an immediate impact at the next level.

    Player Comparison: Boris Diaw. Both players are combo forwards who rely on their finesse game, and ability to step outside and knock down shots rather than banging around inside. Diaw can handle the basketball and shows great passing instincts for a forward, areas that also add to Harris' game.
