2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Darius Miller


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-8, 235

School: Kentucky, Senior


Strengths:
  • Versatility
  • Can guard multiple positions
  • Solid defender
  • Three-point range
  • Mid-range game
  • Catch-and-shoot ability
  • Uses his size to get into the lane
  • Can post up smaller defenders
  • Good passer
  • Consummate glue guy; knows his role
  • Decision-maker
  • Taken what is given to him
  • Underrated athlete



    Weaknesses:
  • Streaky shooter
  • Dribble-drive ability
  • Ball handling
  • Speed/quickness

    Summary: Darius Miller has been overshadowed throughout his entire career due to all the one-and-dones who have been in Lexington. During his time at Kentucky, though, he has been an underrated player and adapted to any role that he has been asked to play. I think some team could take him late in the first round and hope he can play a role off the bench. Most draft experts target him as a second-round pick, but I really like what he offers with his versatility on both ends of the floor.

    Player Comparison: Shane Battier. I told you I was high on Miller. Picture Batter later in his career; a guy who defends a few different positions, knocks down open shots, plays hard and knows his role. I really believe Miller can be that type of player at the next level.
