2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jamaal Franklin


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-5, 205

School: San Diego State, Junior


Strengths:
  • Natural scorer
  • Slashing ability
  • Quick first step
  • Creating his own shot
  • Drawing contact in the lane
  • 3-point range
  • Moves well off the ball
  • Athleticism
  • Rebounds extremely well for his position
  • Competitor




  • Weaknesses:
  • Inconsistent outside shooter
  • Funky rotation on shot
  • On-the-ball defender
  • Takes too many possessions off on the defensive end
  • Decision-making, too often plays out of control
  • Wears long sleeves under his jerseys (okay, this is a selfish one... just think it looks stupid)


  • Summary: Franklin is a volume scorer who is at his best when attacking the basket. He also rebounds the ball extremely well for his position, averaging nearly ten boards a night this season. If Franklin were a better outside shooter, the lottery would be in his future, but because he is not, the mid-late first round seems more likely.

    Player Comparison: Terrence Williams. Though Williams has improved as an outside shooter, he entered the league as no threat from the outside, and that is a major area Franklin needs to work on as well. However, both guys are great off the bounce and "jacks of all trades" with their ability to make an impact in numerous ways. Like Williams, Franklin has a little attitude to him as well that might rub people the wrong way.
