Shakur Juiston

Height: 6-7

Weight: 220

College: Oregon

Classification: Redshirt Senior

Birthdate: 3/31/1996

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent low post scorer
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Tremendous rebounder
Good defensive player
Good athlete
Very good motor

 
Cons:

Must extend his shooting range
Needs to improve his outside shot
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Can be turnover prone
Does not collect enough steals or blocks
May be a classic tweener
Missed considerable time due to a knee injury

 
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.  While NBA scouts and teams will want to know how well he returns from a knee injury, if things go well for him, he could end up being a potential second round pick in 2020.
