Right-handed… Scott had a breakout season playing in his fifth season for the Cavaliers (granted medical redshirt waiver in 2010-11)- he posted a career-high in scoring, doing so at an uber-efficient 56.3 percent shooting, while fine-tuning his perimeter skills. He had always had the ability to knock down that 12-15 footer, but extended his range to the 3-point line as a senior. He is a polished and versatile option with his developed perimeter game. Despite being slightly undersized, he has the ability to score in the post, preferring to go with a hook shot over his left-shoulder or most-commonly a turn-around jumper. He takes his time in reading the defense and he sees a double-team coming, he feels comfortable pounding out a dribble or two to move off the post and hit the open man or face-up. Scott does a good job moving without the ball, utilizing cuts well to make his way to the rim… Scott is an effective rebounder on both ends of the floor, though he will likely have difficulties given his size and explosiveness at the next level… In the mid-range on offense, Scott shows a quick, high-release point on his jumper enabling him to get the shot off quickly and accurately.
Scott answered scouts’ questions surrounding his ankle with his production, but will now hope that a front office will be willing to give a chance based on his age (nearly 24 at the time of the Draft)… He’s a bit undersized at 6’8” for a power forward, not possessing a complete-enough skill set, athleticism or quickness to play on the perimeter full-time, nor does he have the strength or size for that matter to battle inside. Offensively, Scott certainly needs to add to his otherwise bleak array of post moves. Especially when combined with a lack of elevation and lift off the ground, Scott’s shot has a tendency to get blocked. In turn, he will have to combat this by going up stronger and towards the rim instead of fading away or settling for a jumper. He needs to initiate the contact and create separation… Defensively, Scott is likely to struggle defending the pick-and-roll given his average lateral quickness. In the post, he is a willing defender, fighting early on in most possessions to deny positioning, but once his opponent gets the ball, Scott is more likely to foul than block a shot.
