Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Morant's career and reputation took off as he's a multi-faceted player on the offensive end. He profiles well as a point guard with the take-over ability of a pure scorer.
He averaged an NCAA-leading 10 assists per game to go with 24.5 points per game. He made 49.9 percent of his field-goal attempts, a high rate for a guard.
He played well against some of the best teams on the Murray State schedule, so that helped dismiss the notion that he might be feasting on lesser competition. He posted 25 or more points against Auburn, Alabama and Florida State.
He can put on a highlight show, both at the rim and from long range. Plus, there's the passing skills that create some of the biggest reactions.
His quickness can force defenders into fouling and so that's a major part of his game as well.
In both of his college seasons, he averaged 5.7 rebounds or more per game.
ANALYSIS
Morant has all this athleticism and he's not afraid to use it. He'll have to continue to evolve as a player because athleticism alone won't carry most players far enough in the NBA.
Then again, he's not like most players. Point guards with the ability to score like Morant don't come around all that often.
While much of the attention falls on his offense, it's the defensive side that appeals to some evaluators. He can use his wingspan to be a special type of defender.
Morant will be surrounded by talented players in the NBA, yet he could still stand out.
Projection: Top-five pick overall
