NBA Draft

Miles McBride

Scouting Report

McBride took on more responsibility in his second year at West Virginia, and he did not disappoint. He averaged 15.8 points and 4.9 assists to go along with 1.9 steals on the defensive end while playing 34.2 minutes per contest. He shot 43 percent overall and 41.4 percent from 3-point range, considerably better than his freshman marksmanship of 40.2 percent overall and 30.4 percent from beyond the arc.
Positives: On every play, offense or defense, McBride is fast and aggressive. That speed translated to major progress as a playmaker in 2020, and even his free-throw shooting of 81.3 percent suggests that he is a consistent shot maker as a point guard. He could give an NBA team a huge burst of energy off the bench and provide depth at the point.
Negatives: Although McBride could be a terrific bench piece, is he capable of starting night in and night out at point guard? Probably not - at least, not at this point. He surged as a sophomore at West Virginia but will need to prove that his success was not a fluke. As with almost any prospect, his jump shot is not a finished product, and he will need to prove that he can connect from deep consistently in order to garner decent playing time.
