DREW TIMME SCOUTING REPORT

I've been following Drew Timme since he was an 8th grader in the Dallas suburb of Richardson, Texas and now I'm writing about him as an NBA prospect. Timme had a solid but not spectacular freshman campaign where he averaged around 10 points and 5 rebounds on 62% shooting in a little over 20 minutes per game on a deep Gonzaga team. 

I had a chance to watch him play pick basketball a few times this summer and expected him to have a breakout sophomore season in Spokane. What I did not expect was him to morph into a young Kevin McHale in the Zags two early season victories over Kansas and Auburn. He displayed advanced footwork, soft touch and an arsenal of low post moves. Already a gifted passer out of the post, the next step for Timme is to become a consistent threat from deep to improve his draft stock.

Drew did not have a 1st round grade on most mock drafts coming into the season, but I expect him to rise up draft boards as the season progresses.
