#25 Chandler Parsons | F

Hometown: Casselberry, FL

Height: 6'9"

Weight: 213

Position: Small Forward

Team: Florida

Class: Senior

Right-handed… The 6'9" wing has an all-around game and the versatility to impress scouts. He has good length and fits the mold of an NBA small forward. At 6'9", he is versatile enough where he can handle the ball, take it all the way to the rim or set up teammates from anywhere on the court. He has evolved from a pure spot-up shooter into a complete player. He has displayed a high basketball IQ and excellent passing abilities… Parsons uses shot fakes on the offensive end where he can take a dribble or two past his defender and either drive to the rim or pull-up for a jumper. He has the ability to put the ball on the floor with either hand and finish with either around the rim, but prefers going left. His long first step, helps get him that half-step advantage he needs to drive the basketball… As a jump shooter, Parsons has deep range and is developing a consistency to play at the next level…

Parsons has a large frame and solid length to fill; he could still stand to add strength to his frame… He doesn't possess elite athleticism, he still measures out above-average… As a jump shooter, Parsons often fades away, leading to a low arc on his shot, which obviously limits the ball's chances of going in… Along with some additional weight/strength, Parsons would benefit from some added toughness and a more consistent motor. Defensively, he has the solid frame, but will struggle to guard NBA 3s with his current frame… He is a below-average foul-shooter…
