Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Bouknight is one of top available scorers in the draft and averaged 15 points over two seasons at Connecticut.
The 6-foot-5 Bouknight played in just 15 games last season due to an elbow injury that caused him to miss eight contests. The elbow is fully healed.
Bouknight isn't shy about jacking up shots and admitted during a recent interview that his shot selection can improve. He's right.
He shot just 29.3 percent from 3-point range last season while scoring 18.7 points per game. NBA scouts feel his accuracy will improve over time.
Bouknight, who turns 21 in September, had seven 20-point outings last season, including a stellar 40-point effort during an overtime loss to Creighton.
In addition to his scoring prowess, Bouknight has proven to be a solid rebounder for a guard. He averaged 5.7 boards per game last season.
Bouknight had 17 steals but hasn't been a top-flight defender. There are times in which he really locks down but at other times, he isn't fully engaged.
ANALYSIS
Positives: Bouknight is ready to play impactful minutes right away and could be an immediate starter depending on which team picks him. He has the potential to approach 20 points per game as his career develops. Has high-level confidence and floated that people compare him to Devin Booker and Bradley Beal, who just happen to be among the best shooting guards in the NBA.
Negatives: Shot selection is an issue for Bouknight -- both quality and timing -- and he sometimes tries to do too much himself. Guarding bigger shooting guards may take an adjustment period.
