Wendell Moore

Updated as of 8/20/2021, scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-6
Weight: 215
College: Duke
Classification: Junior
Birthdate: 7/18/2001

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Handles the ball well
Solid rebounder for his size
Fairly good defender
Good athlete

Cons:

Really needs to improve his shooting
Can be reluctant to take outside jumpers
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Needs to improve his playmaking skills
Can play too wildly on offense
Can be undisciplined defensively
Can be too inconsistent in games

Summary:

Wendell Moore is a tough, physical swingman that could project to be a defensive specialist at the NBA level.  He has fairly solid playmaking and defensive skills, and he played really well in his team’s overtime win over North Carolina as a freshman.  Currently though, he is in a massive shooting slump, and his shooting percentages have really taken a hit this year during his sophomore season.

He will need to significantly improve his jump shot, and he has a tendency to fade into the background too much, but he is an athletic swingman whose strong physical tools could enable him to get looks from NBA teams in the second round range of the 2022 draft.
