2014 NBA Draft Scouting Report: T.J. Warren


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-8, 215

School: N.C. State, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Extremely efficient scorer
  • Almost automatic from inside 15 feet
  • Great touch around the basket
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Terrific use of floater
  • Moves well off the ball
  • Can post up smaller defenders
  • Straight-line driver
  • Body control




  • Weaknesses:
  • Three-point shooting
  • Lacks ideal NBA explosiveness
  • Breaking down defenders in isolation situations
  • Creating for his teammates
  • Aggressiveness on the boards
  • Commitment on the defensive end


  • Summary: The third-leading scorer in Division One this season, T.J. Warren´┐Żs calling card is his ability to the score the basketball. Other areas of his game are average at best, but NBA teams are always looking for guys to put the ball in the basket and he should be a mid- to late first-round pick.

    Player Comparison: Michael Beasley. Beasley has always been a dangerous offensive threat who has flaws in the other areas of his game. Warren fits that mold as well. Beasley is a better outside shooter, but both guys are capable of playing either forward position.
