Projected Draft Range: Likely Undrafted
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Can post up smaller players
Shot the ball well as a sophomore
Above average athlete
Needs to improve his shooting
Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Struggles to score in traffic
Can have lapses defensively
Not an elite athlete
Donta Scott is an athletic combo forward that could project into a 3 and D type of role in the NBA. He is shooting the three-ball very well as a sophomore. On the other hand, he struggled with his three-point shot for the past two seasons and he will need to be a more consistent defender in games. Currently, he is a long shot to be drafted, but if he can get his jump shot back on track, it could help him significantly in the future.
