Scouting Report


  • Sets effective screens: Opens up driving lanes and opens shots for teammates

  • Shot blocking: Can utilize his long length to rim protect

  • Paint Finisher: Can score off the post or putbacks

  • Rebounding: Box out his man to secure the rebound

Coming Soon...


  • Lacks lateral quickness - Always in the drop coverage in PNR situations.

  • Needs to improve overall foot speed getting up and down the court.

  • Needs to improve his free throw shooting

  • Doesn’t have a quick release on jumpshot

Coming Soon...


Donovan demonstrates strengths in setting screens to create opportunities for teammates, shot blocking to protect the rim, scoring in the paint, and securing rebounds through boxing out. However, their weaknesses lie in quickness when hedging on screens and in PNR situations, as well as needing improvement in free throw shooting. Additionally, their jumpshot lacks a quick release.

Defensive Switch Metric:

Charting Sample Size - how many games were observed and charted

Total Active Possessions- total number of possessions where a player guarded the ball, forced a deflection or was involved in an off-ball action.

Total Switch Possessions- total number of possessions with a switch or cross-match where a wing player is guarding a lead ball handler or post player.

Total Shots Defended- number of shots where a player was the primary defender or directly contesting the opposing player’s shot.

Synergy Points Per Possession- points per possession for all defensive plays marked by Synergy.

Switch Points Per Possession- points per possession while a player was switched or cross-matched onto an opposing ball handler or big (post player).

Shot Contest Grade- rates a player’s shot contest on a scale of 1-4 under the following criteria

1. Wide Open- player was not within 8-10 feet of the scorer or no contest at all (1 Contest Point)

2. Open- hands down on a contest, within 8-10 feet of the shooter (2 Contest Points)

3. Light Contest- hands up on a contest and within 5-8 feet of a shooter (3 Contest Points)

4. Heavy Contest- close to the shooter and forcing an off-balance, fading, or double-clutch shot, or a light contest preceded by a non-fouling bump in the legal guarding position (4 Contest Points)

Switch Position Grade - rates a player’s positionality on a scale of 1-4 during the process of switching throughout a possession

  1. Bad- out-of-control closeout, pinned in under the basket or fronting too far out from the basket on a post up, blow-by, or trailing heavily behind a play because of screen navigation, no ball pressure (1 SP Grade Point)

  2. Neutral- on the side/slightly behind a player, flat-footed or with little ball pressure, not ready to move in a closeout situation, directly behind a post player on the block or on the side in a deny coverage (2 SP Grade Points)

  3. Good- under control closeout and good on-ball defense, moderate ball pressure, close follow in trail position for a pick and roll or lock and trail scenario, fronting or keeping post player outside of the restricted area on a post-up (3 SP Grade Points)

  4. Very Good- excellent closeout and on-ball defense, switching “into” a player with high ball pressure and intensity, strongly denying a post player in a post-up or pushing them out of the paint (4 SP Grade Points)

Stocks per 100 - steals and blocks per 100 active possessions

Blown Coverage- a missed closeout or rotation, blow by, reaching/gambling for steals with no

turnover forced, flopping, and any shooting foul
