Updated as of 4/6/2021, scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 184
College: Alabama
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 12/3/1998

2021 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 67
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Decent shooter, especially from deep
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Moves fairly well off the ball
Adequate playmaker
Decent rebounder for his size
Decent defender
Good athlete

Cons:

Struggles to create his own shot
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Streaky shooter
Not an elite ball handler, can be turnover prone
Can have lapses defensively

Summary:

John Petty is an athletic, skilled swingman that projects to be a shooting specialist in the NBA.  He is a good three-point shooter that moves well off the ball, and he also can run off screens to make shots from long-distance.

He also does a fairly good job of using off-ball movement to get additional scores on offense.   However, he will need to improve in the other facets of the game.  Right now, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
