LOCKE’S TAKE

What a body.  7’2.25 wingspan.  6’7 body.  203 pounds at 19 years old.   With a sweet stroke.   Used very little at Kansas in Bill Self’s point guard post centric offense.  Opening month of his time at Kansas was very rocky.  Not an incredible athlete but moves smoothly and could have a huge impact defensively with his length.  Has a decent handle.  Didn’t always look like he was playing hard at Kansas.   Grabbed 5 rebounds a game which is a lot for a wing and if he continues that in NBA puts him in elite category.    Have to decide if you believe he is waiting to explode once out of the shackles of Kansas or is all body no game.

PERSONAL STORIES/BACKGROUND

Kelly Oubre is a man from Louisiana, forced to move because of Hurricane Katrina, moving to Texas, playing AAU basketball with the likes of Justise Winslow and Justin Jackson. Oubre at Kansas, was known as a good athlete, with an improving offensive game. Both his free throw and three point percentages are respectable. Using his combination of speed, size and strength, he could be a good two way player in the NBA. He is predicted to be selected in the lottery or a few picks below the end of the lottery.

LOCKE’S TAKE

Labelled as the best shooter in the draft in a league desperate for shooting.   However, what else does he do?  As the youngest player in the Draft there is a lots of room for improvement.   With all the talent at Kentucky it is hard to tell if he was limited to his role because of what surrounded him or because he is limited.  If he is a just a shooter then taking him in the top 12 is a huge stretch.   He shows some off the bounce game but the college numbers are not good in this area.  He has decent measurables.  Opposing teams went at him defensively whenever he was on the floor.   He has a perfect release and terrific form on his shot.  Has been schooled well by former NBA dad.

 

PERSONAL STORIES/BACKGROUND

Devin Booker is an intriguing prospect because of his lack of playing time on a loaded Kentucky team, featuring 9 All Americans. Booker is known for his shot, shooting 41.1% from three and 82.8% from the strike. Booker projects to be a mid to late lottery selection, even with his full array of skills not being shown at Kentucky. Booker, although known for being a shooter posted good results in the combine, with a 10.22 second lane agility time, 2.75 second shuttle run and a 3.28 second ¾ quarter court sprint. His main knock is being a poor finisher at the rim, but at only 18. he still has time to mature physically into his body, and put on some weight in order to compete better at the next level physically.
