2014 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Kyle Anderson


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-9, 230

School: UCLA, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Versatility
  • Can play point forward
  • Terrific court vision
  • Passing ability
  • Rarely plays out of control
  • Smooth slashing ability
  • Soft touch around the hoop
  • Body control when driving
  • Drive-and-dish ability
  • Can post up smaller defenders
  • Mid-range game
  • Solid rebounder
  • Length helps him on the defensive end and glass




  • Weaknesses:
  • Inconsistent outside shooting
  • Very slow release on jumper
  • Lacks ideal NBA athleticism
  • Needs to get stronger
  • Defensive effort
  • Will struggle guarding NBA forwards


  • Summary: At 6-9, Anderson possesses a very unique skill set as someone who can do a little bit of everything on the floor and is a triple-double threat every night. Where will he fit at the next level though? Can he truly play the point? Because of that uncertainty, Anderson projects as a likely mid-late-first-round pick.

    Player Comparison: Lamar Odom. Because of his ability to run a point forward position and size for a versatile player, Anderson has some Odom to his game. Anderson is able to create and has better vision than Odom, who was more explosive than Anderson.
