Height: 6-8

Country: D.R. Congo

Classification: Non-College Draft Prospect

Pros:

Fairly good scorer off the dribble
Decent shooter
Adequate low post scorer
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate playmaker
Adequate rebounder
Decent defender
Very good athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his free throw shooting

Tendency to over-dribble, which may lead to turnovers
Not an elite rebounder
Can be undisciplined defensively

Summary:

Jonathan Kuminga is a very athletic, skilled forward that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He can take the ball to the rim to garner scores, and he also can pull up to knock down jumpers.  However, he has a tendency to take tough, contested shots that can hurt his shooting percentages, and he also can sometimes be a bit of a ball stopper on offense.  He is a high upside prospect that has the potential to excel on both ends of the floor in the NBA, and he projects to be a likely lottery pick in 2021.
