Updated as of 8/4/2020, scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-3
Weight: 196
College: Xavier
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 3/9/1998

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round

Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Adequate shooter, especially from mid-range
Can post up smaller players
Decent playmaker
Adequate rebounder for his size
Adequate defensive player
Above average athlete

Cons:

Streaky shooter
Needs to improve his ball handling, struggles to go right
Can be turnover prone
Can be undisciplined defensively
Not an elite athlete

Summary:

Paul Scruggs is a tough, gritty playmaker that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He is a solid mid-range shooter, and he also can score off the dribble as well as in the post.  He’ll need to improve his ball handling ability and be a more consistent shooter from beyond the arc, but Scruggs’ ability to score and defend could make him a second round pick in the 2021 draft.
