Scouting Report

Eason played one season at LSU after transferring from Cincinnati, making the climb to a possible first-round selection in the NBA Draft. He jumped to 16.9 points per game after posting just 7.3 as a freshman.
His 3-point shooting showed a big jump by rising to 35.9 percent, something that's bound to make him more versatile. He's a selective shooter, so if pressed into the need to launch more shots it would be worth monitoring what might happen with his scoring average.
Eason led LSU in scoring and was second in steals (1.9 per game) despite starting in only four games.
Strengths: At 6-foot-8, he has the type of body and agility that allows him to potential defend at any position other that the post. His wingspan exceeds 7 feet, so that's bound to be a bonus particularly when he's on the perimeter. The good thing is that observers are quick to point out some of his defensive assets and that's accompanied with the assessment that he's a heady player. He's already considered in the upper echelon athletically, with room to put on additional muscle.
Weaknesses: He'll need to prove that he has a good enough motor to be competitive all of the time. He played less than 25 minutes per game during the recent college season, so while some of his per-game statistics might be solid based on that, it more be a hint of concerns if he's capable of the rigors of an NBA season. Perhaps based on changing programs and the messy situation at LSU, his growth could have been stunted at the college level. There could be questions about why he wasn't in the LSU starting lineup. To some scouts, he might look a bit too one-dimensional and might be too right-handed dominant when he has the ball.
