TERRENCE SHANNON, JR. SCOUTING REPORT

Texas Tech sophomore Terrence Shannon, Jr is a phenomenal athlete that fits the mold of the modern day NBA 3 & D wing. At this point in his development he's not a consistent shooter from deep, but his upside as a shooter is promising with his soft shooting touch and efficiency at the charity stripe. 

Shannon, Jr excels in the open floor where he can showcase his speed, athleticism and highlight reel dunks.

In my opinion he plays more like an undersized 4 than a traditional wing as he seems to prefer scoring around the rim and through contact. He has a nice pull up/mid range jumper and has the tools to become a really good slasher on straight line drives to the rim.

The main area for development is his 3 point shooting. He's shown flashes (4-7 from deep vs Kansas on 12/17/20) of becoming a threat from deep, but he's still too reluctant to pull the trigger in my opinion. 

Texas Tech has a nice run of producing NBA draft picks in the last 4 years and Terrence Shannon, Jr could be the next to hear his name called by Adam Silver on draft day.
