Mustapha Heron

Updated as of 5/14/2020, scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 215
College: St. John’s
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 12/12/1997

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Fairly good scorer off the dribble
Adequate shooter, especially from deep
Excels at scoring on the move
Decent rebounder for his size
Decent defensive player
Solid athlete

Cons:

Streaky shooter
Can struggle to score in traffic
Needs to improve his playmaking skills
Can play too wildly on offense
Can have lapses defensively
Can be a bit foul prone

Summary:

Mustapha Heron is an athletic swingman that can shoot and score the basketball.  He also rebounds the ball well, especially for a player his size.  Heron struggled to make shots considerably this season, and he made under 40% of his field goals this season, but still managed to shoot the three-ball well from beyond the arc.  Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2020 draft.
