Victor Oladipo

Scouting Report

Having turned heads with high-flying dunks and stellar defensive play during his junior season at Indiana, Oladipo has transformed himself from an overlooked recruit to a likely top-five pick in this year's draft. With remarkable explosiveness and tremendous leaping ability, Oladipo has to be considered one of the most exciting players in his class. Thanks in part to an improved jumper, Oladipo averaged 13.6 points and shot 59.9 percent in 2012-13, and he also made significant strides from 3-point range. After going a combined 18 for 74 (24.3 percent) from beyond the arc during his first two seasons in Bloomington, Oladipo shot 44.1 percent (30 of 68) from long distance last season. While he still has plenty of room to improve offensively, Oladipo should make an immediate impact on the defensive end. The reigning Big Ten defensive player of the year came up with a whopping 78 steals, the most in a single season in school history. A terrific perimeter defender, Oladipo's quickness and non-stop motor should help him thrive in the NBA. Oladipo, who played in all 104 games over the last three seasons, doesn't come with any injury concerns. He moves extremely well without with the ball and creates havoc around the rim. Oladipo averaged 6.3 boards in 2012-13 - the Big Ten's best mark among guards. While he may be a bit undersized for his position, Oladipo more than makes up for it with his athleticism and passion for the game.
