Donovan Mitchell Scouting Report
Guard, Louisville, Sophmore
NBA Skill-Set Comparison: Norman Powell, Gary Harris
Best Case Comparison: Avery Bradley
Good mentality: high-character, highly intelligent, hard worker (has improved drastically year-to-year). Unique physical tools: enormous length (6'10" wingspan), very strong (211 lbs.), excellent speed and body control at both ends, explosive. Can score from anywhere, versatile shot-maker, absorbs contact well. Versatile defender: can defend guards and smaller 3s. Plays bigger than his height, active off the ball (2.6 stls per 40 mins).
Undersized for a 2 guard at 6'3". Does not have elite guard skills, probably can't play point guard at the next level. Not a great finisher at the rim or on floaters. Although an improved shooter, still lacks consistency. Great shooter when he's wide open, but awful shooter when he's being contested closely.
