Scouting Report


  • Excels at finishing at the rim in transition

  • Runs the floor well without the ball in transition

  • Possesses crafty footwork through traffic while attacking downhill

  • Has the ability to create shots for himself in isolation, has an explosive first step off the dribble which makes him difficult to contain on the perimeter

  • Has quick lateral movement while defending on the perimeter in on-ball situations

  • Has the ability to draw multiple defenders forcing the defense to collapse due to his consistent rim pressure

Coming Soon...


  • Needs to improve his decision making in traffic

  • Not as confident making plays going to his right, as well as finishing at the rim with his right

  • Ball control in transition is solid, but his overall handle needs improvement

  • Needs to continue to improve jumper beyond the arc

  • Distributing in the open floor needs to improve

Coming Soon...


Shannon’s main strength is his ability to score in transition, as he led the nation in transition points per game. He is able to initiate the attack himself or run the outside lanes which led to quick baskets. He is primarily looking to drive downhill and create shots for himself at the rim. He has the ability to draw in multiple defenders forcing the defense to collapse due to his constant rim pressure. His crafty footwork through traffic allowed him to maneuver through the defense to get to his spots. Shannon’s explosive first step off the dribble makes it difficult for defenders to contain him along the perimeter. Defensively, Shannon plays the passing lanes well due to his anticipation and positioning away from the ball. He showcased quick lateral movement while defending on the ball along the perimeter. Some of his main weaknesses include decision making in traffic, distribution in the open floor, and making plays off the dribble going to his right as well as finishing with his right. His C&S jumper beyond the arc needs to continue to improve especially while contested.

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
