Shakur Juiston

Height: 6-7

Weight: 220

College: Oregon

Classification: Redshirt Senior

Birthdate: 3/31/1996

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Excels at attacking the basket

Decent playmaker

Tremendous rebounder

Adequate defensive player

Better athlete than advertised

Cons:

Must extend his shooting range

Needs to improve his outside shot

Needs to improve his free throw shooting

Can be turnover prone

Does not collect enough steals or blocks

May be a classic tweener

Missed considerable time due to a knee injury

Summary:

Shakur Juiston is an athletic, high motor combo forward that will crash the basket to garner points and rebounds in the paint for his team.

At 6-7, he will be undersized to play inside at the next level, and he will likely need to significantly improve his perimeter skills.  But there is no doubt that he was quite productive as a junior last year.  While NBA scouts and teams will want to know how well he returns from a knee injury, if things go well for him, he could end up being a potential second round pick in 2020.
