2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Victor Oladipo


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-5, 214

School: Indiana, Junior


Strengths:
  • Lockdown perimeter defender
  • Can guard multiple positions
  • Absolute ball hawk on D
  • Jumping passing lanes
  • Plays incredibly hard
  • Athleticism
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Attacking the basket
  • Awesome in the open floor
  • Three-point range
  • Rebounds well for his position




  • Weaknesses:
  • Consistency with outside shooting
  • Going left off the bounce
  • Ball handling could improve


  • Summary: I am starting to become a HUGE fan of Oladipo and honestly think he could be a lottery pick by the time June rolls around. He is an absolute terror on the defensive end and terrific attacking the basket, which will be his two biggest strengths at the next level. The strides Oladipo has made in his junior season means he is still improving too. Forget Cody Zeller, Oladipo has been Indiana's best player this season.

    Player Comparison: Thabo Sefolosha.

    Sefolosha has made his mark in the NBA as a terrific defender and that is what Oladipo's calling card will be as well. I think Oladipo has more potential as a scorer due to his athleticism and explosiveness at the rim, which is why I think there is a little Andre Iguodala to his game as well.
