Pros:

Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent low post scorer
Very good rebounder

Cons:

Must extend his shooting range
Needs to improve his outside shot
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Struggles to consistently create his own shot

May be a classic tweener
Missed considerable time due to a knee injury
Old for a draft prospect, may have limited upside

 
Summary:

Shakur Juiston is an athletic, high motor combo forward that will crash the basket to garner points and rebounds in the paint for his team.

At 6-7, he will be undersized to play inside at the next level, and he will likely need to significantly improve his perimeter skills.  But there is no doubt that he was quite productive as a junior last year.  This season, he had some good games for Oregon, but has not really developed an outside shot and is not really a scorer, so he will need to expand upon his skill set on offense.  He may likely wind up going undrafted, but Juiston’s athleticism, motor, and defensive skills could potentially allow him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA.
