NBA Draft Spotlight: Zach Norvell Jr.

I would expect Zach Norvell to return to Gonzaga to become the go-to option, but he has the talent to be a second round pick if he chooses to leave.

Position: SG From: Gonzaga Class/YOB: Sophomore
Height: 6’5 Weight: 205 Wingspan: N/A

Strengths:

  • Athletic scorer that can create his own shot off the dribble. Loves to go to the stepback in isolation situations
  • Good spot-up shooter that steps into threes from NBA-range. Very high volume three shooter
  • Frame should continue to add strength to help him become a better defender against size
  • Skilled slasher with the springs to finish up and over challengers around the rim
  • Has natural passing instincts in the drive-and-kick game

Weaknesses:

  • Shot selection can be questionable at times
  • I would like to see him develop his point guard skills a bit. Took a nice step this year handling the ball more in space and setting up teammates
  • Active in the passing lanes, but he needs to more disciplined guarding the ball
  • Sticks to left-handed drives and generally only uses right-handed dribbles to attack in a straight line.
