FUTURE TOP DOG

NBA ROLE: (RAW) NEW WAVE, TWO-WAY BIG

 

Next Big Thing? Jaren Jackson Jr. is a new wave big w/ ridiculous, raw potential; tremendous athlete: uses gifts to standout defensively (demoralizing, high-volume shot-blocker*) w/ excellent instincts & natural awareness; scratching surface offensively: very good stand still shooter, nice form and patience; JJJ loves the three ball, able to hit triples in multiple ways: off screens, handoffs, spot ups; developing more confidence off the dribble: makes long strides towards the rim - needs to consistently score off a few bounces; strong finisher in the lane (better w/ left than right?), though needs to improve scoring thru traffic; lefty power dunk = sig slam?; able to drive and score after facing, will be more effective w/ a tighter handle & more counters; must put a body on him, likes to score off o-boards; 3&B role to start out?; HIGH reward prospect w/ an engaging personality - JJJ has legitimate star upside in Memphis
