Summary

Derek Lively is a 7’1 center who has terrific athleticism and length. He has good lateral quickness, which helps him stay in front of opposing players. He has great instincts as shot blocker, on the ball, as help defender and on closeouts.  What’s evolving for him is his abilty to shoot from the 3pt line in trail and PnP action to couple that with his abiltiy to catch lobs he's a unique floor spacer as he can do it vertically or from the perimeter. He runs the floor extremely well and has good hands. He needs to add some strength as he tends to shy away from mixing it up on the interior and must improve his footwork on the block and he can fall in love with the 3ball too much.

Notes

Made Hoops Midwest Mania - Indianapolis, IN - 4/23-25/2021


Catches lob dunk with two hands. Makes PnP 3 from the top of the key. Stayed vertical in the post used his length to block the shot without leaving his feet. Nice catch in traffic, uses up and under to get the defender to fly by, finishes with a dunk off the vert. Catches lob dunk with two hands. Makes PnP 3 from the top of the key.

Pangos All American – Las Vegas, NV – 6/6 – 6-8/2021


Makes 1 leg runner in the lane. Catches lob in transtion on the R side. PnR on the L wing, dunks at the rim, got off his feet quick. PnR dunk at the rim, showed great athleticism finishing over his defender. Good hands in transtion, catches whatever you throw to him. Runs the floor well, finishes above the rim. Shot the ball well from the 3pt line in trail and PnP action.


Peach Jam - Augusta, GA - 7/19 - 7/25/2021


Offensively, he rim-runs very well, consistently beating the defense down the court for easy dunks. He hits the offensive boards and has a quick 2nd jump, not allowing the defense time to react. He has vertical spacer potential if he plays with guys that look for him in PnR action. He also can step out and shoot the 3ball in PnP or trail action. Defensively, he is a very good shot-blocker both on the ball and as a help-side defender. He can also switch out on the perimeter and defend for a few dribbles. If he gets beat off the dribble, his length and athleticism allow him to recover at the rim. Areas of improvement would be, developing a go-to post move and becoming a more consistent shooter from the 3pt line.
