LARRY NANCE JR. (CLE)
#22•L. NANCE JR.
F/C • 6’9, 230 lbs; 5th year, Wyoming
NBA ROLE: ATHLETIC 4/5
A high-jumping forward outta Wyoming, Larry Nance Jr’s most redeemable skills are his work ethic, endless motor & game-changing flushes; a true ‘multiple effort’ guy who rarely takes plays off, you can count on LDN to show up; a scrapper/high-flyer his first couple years, Nance Jr. is expanding his game – if he adds (more) consistent range (funky looking release is impossible to get green on NBA 2K) to complement his athleticism, he’ll be hard to stop as a PnR finisher (whether it’s an OOP or J, Nance Jr. would be circled on the scouting report); stupid bounce: specializes in floating dunks & ‘climb the ladder’ jams: a one-handed, Space Jam-esque tomahawk; diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease while in HS – has battled to overcome it while pursuing his lifelong dream; acquired by CLE at the 2018 deadline, Nance Jr. is called upon for interior defense & an injection of athleticism
ONE DRIBBLE, (SPACE) JAM
