Page updated as of 4/12/2020, scouting report written by Alan Lu.
2019 rankings were finalized on 6/19/2019.

Height: 6-2
Weight: 185
College: Gonzaga
Classification: Redshirt Senior
Birthdate: 8/25/1995

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Adequate shooter, especially from deep
Decent scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on the move
Solid playmaker
Decent defensive player
Smart player that has a good feel for the game

Cons:

Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Does not draw enough free throws
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Can be too passive on offense
Needs to improve his rebounding
Does not collect enough steals or blocks
Only an average athlete
Old for a draft prospect, may have limited upside

Summary:

Josh Perkins is a smart, skilled point guard that knows how to effectively run a team.  He shoots and passes the ball well, and he also is an aggressive defender that can get numerous stops on that side of the ball.

On the downside, he may not be a dynamic offensive player, and his advanced age for a draft prospect may limit his upside, but Josh Perkins may have the skills to develop into a backup point guard in the league in the mold of a Matthew Dellavedova type.
