2014 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Gary Harris


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-4, 210

School: Michigan State, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • All-around scorer
  • Attacking the basket
  • Slashing ability
  • Utilizes floater in the lane
  • Three-point shooter
  • Mid-range game
  • Moves well off the ball
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Creating his own shot
  • Free throw shooting
  • Strength
  • Active defender




  • Weaknesses:
  • Lacks ideal NBA athleticism/explosiveness at the rim
  • A bit undersized for a NBA shooting guard
  • Shot selection


  • Summary: Finally fully healthy after playing banged up during his freshman campaign, Gary Harris has proven to be one of the better all-around shooting guards in the country. He can score from all areas of the floor whether with his outside shooting or attacking the rim. Harris should be a solid shooting guard at the next level, which is why he should be selected in the late lottery.

    Player Comparison: Gerald Henderson. Henderson has developed into a solid, but not spectacular, NBA shooting guard, partially because he still struggles shooting it from deep. Harris is a better outside shooter than Henderson, though not as explosive around the rim. The Spartan sophomore should have a nice NBA career like Henderson has thus far, but I don't see Harris being a superstar-level two guard.
