2014 NBA Draft Scouting Report: DeAndre Kane


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-4, 200

School: Iowa State, Senior


Strengths:
  • Strength/physicality
  • Finishing through contact around the rim
  • Able to back down defenders in the post
  • Creating for teammates
  • Court vision
  • Improved three-point shooter
  • Rebounds extremely well for his position
  • Solid athleticism




  • Weaknesses:
  • Age; will be 25 years old by draft night
  • Free-throw shooting
  • Consistency with three-point shot
  • Turnover proned


  • Summary: Considering Kane is four to five years older than most prospects in the 2014 NBA Draft, that hurts his stock since he was pretty much a man among boys this past season. Transferring to Iowa State did help his stock, and his all-around game should draw the interest of numerous teams looking for guard depth in the second round.

    Player Comparison: Shelvin Mack. Both Mack and Kane are physically built point guards capable of scoring or distributing the rock. Kane brings more versatility to the floor, while Mack is probably a better outside shooter. Nevertheless, Kane might struggle to find his home at the next level like Mack has endured thus far.
