NBA Comparison: Landry Fields

Strengths: Experienced wing that has been an excellent role player on a championship-caliber team for three consecutive years ... Has nice size for a small forward, standing 6'7.5" in shoes with a 6'9" wingspan ... Strong frame ... Quick trigger on the perimeter ... Squares up to the basket efficiently ... A very good spot-up shooter that moves well without the basketball ... Doesn't need the ball to help the team on offense ... Likes to camp in the corner, which creates space for post players and a potential bailout for ball-handlers ... Can put the ball on the floor if the defense over-commits to him on the perimeter ... Capable of making basic moves off the dribble ... Keeps the ball low when changing directions ... Is seeing a lot of success shooting pull-up jumpers from 15-20 feet away from the hoop ... Good shot-selection ... Isn't going to make a ton of mistakes or bad decisions ... Solid defender ... Moves his feet fairly well and uses his strength to keep players in front of him ... Ready to contribute as a role-player right away ...

Weaknesses: Won't blow anybody away with his athletic ability ... Not particularly quick or fast ... Despite improved ball-handling ability, is not the type of player to attack the rim ... Shoots a very limited number of free-throws (only averaged 1.7 free-throws attempted per game in his senior season) ... Upside is limited ...

Overall: Even though he's not the most athletic or skilled player in the draft, Miller has a lot to offer NBA teams ... He can be effective and efficient without having to take many opportunities away from his teammates ... For that reason, he'd be better suited on a team with a star or two already on the roster ... His experience and role-playing potential will make him a very attractive option in the late-first or early-second round ...
