The kid is a 2019, plenty of time to clean up the issues. Could be a heck of a player in a year or two. Worth the offer.From DraftExpress (DraftExpress - BioSteel All Canadian High School Basketball Game Scouting Reports)
QUINCY GUERRIER, CANADA, SF, CLASS OF 2019, UNCOMMITTED, 17.9
STRENGTHS -Excellent physical profile for an NBA wing prospect. 6'6 with a 6'10 wingspan. Nice frame that will fill out well in time. Wide shoulders. Proportionate upper and lower body. -Fluid athlete who can play above the rim in space. Fills the lanes in transition. Quick first step. Moves really well overall. -Good straight line slasher thanks to his athleticism and stride length. -Shooting mechanics could use some cleaning up but the ball comes out fairly well and he gets rotation and arc. Knocked down a few triples in the BioSteel game (including a transition pull up) after struggling during practices. -Fluid handling the ball in the open court. Skill level has room to improve but showed brief glimpses in space. -Competes defensively. Can really sit down and slide. Was willing to take on the role as defensive stopper during practices. Active off the ball as well. Verticality at the rim in helpside situations. -3 and D style wing with physical upside.
WEAKNESSES -Overall skill level a work in progress. Limited to mostly transition finishes and straight line drives at this stage. -Shooting mechanics leave much to be desired. Staggered feet, elbow out, forward jumper. Not the most natural stroke. -Not going to create much offense in the half court. Handle is a bit raw versus pressure. Not comfortable pulling up off the dribble. -Finesse as a finisher has room to improve. Relies more on tools. -Average feel for the game. Decision making isn't great at this stage. Will hoist up contested jumpers early in the clock. More of a three than a two skill wise. Limited operating in pick and roll. -Very quiet on the floor. -Old relative to his class. Will be 20 years old by the time he plays his first college game.
OUTLOOK Guerrier, who didn't have much of an impact on the U17 team that competed in the 2017 Worlds, was a pleasant surprise both in practices and the BioSteel game. Although he's a bit old for his class, the 6'6 wing has NBA tools and athleticism to go along with lockdown potential and a shot that should develop over time. Guerrier is still a little rough around the edges skill wise, especially considering his age, but the NBA is always looking for wings with size and length who can defend and make a shot, and Guerrier certainly fits that mold. The class of 2019 prospect has plenty of time to develop as well. The athletic wing definitely helped himself in Toronto as one of the more intriguing long-term prospects in attendance. - Source: DraftExpress - BioSteel All Canadian High School Basketball Game Scouting Reports ©DraftExpress
The profile says he's not going to do much in the halfcourt... so sounds like a classic recruit-for-the-zone type.6'6" kid with a 6'10" wingspan is a JB wet dream. How are his offensive skills? Is he a shooter? Sounds like a pretty solid Syracuse SF type.
I like that he'll be older when he plays for the first time, though that also means he'd be gone after a year or two.
He has a couple of years to work on his "weaknesses". His jump shot needs a little tweaking. He has the touch and it comes off his hand nicely, he just has some form breaks. He can fix those as well as work on his handle. Jordan Tucker made huge strides in his ball handling this past year, and this kid has more time.The profile says he's not going to do much in the halfcourt... so sounds like a classic recruit-for-the-zone type.
or it sounds like a young kid who is only a sophomore who has room to work on his skills, good thing he has two years before he steps on a college campus...nothing like trying to find a negative in something though right!!!The profile says he's not going to do much in the halfcourt... so sounds like a classic recruit-for-the-zone type.
I agree with this from a brief glimpse. He already has the length to play the wing for us and if he grows thats even better. Being a good open floor slasher means that as he improves his handle he should be able to start slashing in half court sets.He would be a good SF in our system and I think is well worth the offer. He will grow another inch or two at the least and continue to work on getting stronger and his shot and footwork. Sign me up.
Neither does their neighbor, Washington. Must be something in the clean water/air or something.Ironically I think Oregon also offered him. Oregon does not put up geographical boundaries
He won't rank him because he doesn't play HS ball in the states.Neither does their neighbor, Washington. Must be something in the clean water/air or something.
Nice to see another kid coming to visit us so early. Maybe change is in the air. Plenty of time for his rankings to change with Evan Daniels, if that's important to anyone.
