Scouting Report on Kevin Durant

by Jerry Meyer - 05/02/2005
Durant has the lethal combination of length and a pure stroke with NBA range. Can also put the ball on the floor and score when the defender rushes his shot fake. Not an explosive athlete, Durant has a tendancy to be too passive as a defender and rebounder.

Jerry Meyer serves as a national scout and recruiting analyst for Rivals.com. He played at Lipscomb University where be became college basketball's all-time career assist leader. Meyer earned Mr. Basketball honors in the state of Tennessee as a high school junior and senior. He has served as an assistant coach at Vanderbilt and also co-authored the book, "Basketball Skills and Drills."
