2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Draymond Green


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-7, 230

School: Michigan State, Senior


Strengths:
  • Physicality
  • Strength
  • Strong rebounder
  • Passing ability
  • Mid-range game
  • Three-point range
  • Inside/outside game
  • Footwork in the post
  • Can back down defenders
  • Doesn't need to score to impact game
  • Plays extremely hard
  • Basketball IQ
  • Terrific teammate/leader





    Weaknesses:
  • Undersized to guard an NBA power forward but not quick enough to cover a small forward
  • Defending on the perimeter
  • Lacks ideal NBA athleticism
  • Breaking down defenders in one-on-one iso situations
  • Slow release on his jump shot
  • Will probably have to cut some weight to gain athleticism and quickness

    Summary: Green capped off a stellar college career with an All-American-caliber senior season. There is still concern as to how his game will translate to the NBA since he doesn't have a true position at the next level. Still, I think he can potentially be a solid role player due to his intangibles and could get late first-round looks.

    Player Comparison: Boris Diaw. Diaw is an undersized, jack-of-all-trades type of player who can impact in a game in many ways. Green is similar in that he can do a little bit of everything on the floor and doesn't need to be a scorer to make a positive impact on his game.
