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.
