2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Shabazz Muhammad


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-6, 225

School: UCLA, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Athleticism
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Strength
  • Physicality
  • Aggressive attacking the tin
  • 3-point range
  • Decent mid-range jumper
  • Can post up smaller defenders
  • Strong rebounder
  • Plays extremely hard
  • Length




  • Weaknesses:
  • Shot selection
  • Too often a black hole on the offensive end
  • Passing ability
  • Creating for teammates
  • Consistency with his jump shot


  • Summary: Originally ruled ineligible for his freshman season, Muhammad was declared eligible by the NCAA and has been a high-level college scorer. Depending on team need, Muhammad will be in the discussion for the top overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

    Player Comparison: Corey Maggette.

    Maggette has relied on his strength and physicality as a driver to be a successful scorer at the NBA level. He has never been a terrific outside shooter, and right now, that is the biggest weakness for Muhammad, who is most effective due to his aggressiveness off the bounce. Both guys are also shot hunters looking to score the basketball rather than create for teammates.
