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

Height: 6-6
Weight: 215
College: Tennessee
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 5/7/1999

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round

Pros:

Decent shooter, especially from mid-range
Excels at scoring on the move
Adequate rebounder
Decent defender
Good shot blocker
Good athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Inconsistent long-range shooter
May struggle to consistently create his own shot
Needs to improve his playmaking skills
Can be unfocused defensively
Relative late bloomer

Summary:

Yves Pons is an athletic, energetic swingman that could project to be a 3 and D type of player in the NBA. Though he is a fairly low volume player on offense, Pons is an efficient scorer that can make mid-range shots and finish plays above the rim, and he also is a good shot blocker on the defensive end. He will need to be a more consistent shooter from long-range and also improve his playmaking ability, but Pons is a talented player that projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
