2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Sergey Karasev


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-7, 197

School: Russia, 1993


Strengths:
  • Three-point shooter
  • NBA range and beyond
  • Catch-and-shoot ability
  • Quick release
  • Moving off the ball
  • Mid-range game
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Can put it on the deck with either hand
  • Basketball IQ
  • Unselfish player
  • Good passer
  • Played well at a high level overseas




  • Weaknesses:
  • Athleticism
  • Lacks explosiveness at the rim
  • Strength/physicality
  • Subpar defender
  • Lateral quickness
  • Stands around too much on the glass


  • Summary: Every NBA team needs a pure shooter like Karasev, and since he has already had success at a high level of basketball overseas, he will be a first-round pick. Karasev could sneak into the late lottery but, more than likely, won't fall past the early 20's.

    Player Comparison: Kyle Korver. A liability on the defensive end, Korver has made a living in the NBA due to his ability to stroke it from distance and be a solid role player. That is where Karasev figures to fit in the association as well; a complimentary offensive threat who can stretch defenses with his outside shooting. Like Korver, Karasev's biggest question mark will come on the defensive end since there are questions as to how he will be able to defend more athletic NBA wings.
