NBA ROLE: ATHLETIC UTILITY FORWARD

 

Despite bouncing around during his short career, JaKarr Sampson plays a versatile game as a hybrid forward; could be really scary if handled correctly - insanely athletic at 6'9, able to handle the ball & finish in traffic (nice running hook shot); attacks well off the dribble, pretty good finisher, has worked on pacing going to the rim - soft touch; needs to continue working on long-range game - higher accuracy could earn him time at both forward spots; Sampson’s fought hard to stay relevant in the NBA - increase in responsibility coming soon?
