Jonathan Kuminga Scouting Report

Jonathan is regarded as one of the hottest prospects ahead of the 2021 NBA Draft. He is considered as a versatile defender, a definite asset for any team in the big league. At 6-foot-8, 220 pounds with a 7-foot wingspan, Kuminga’s body is ready to play week-in and week-out in the highly competitive NBA regular season.

He has earned some rave comparisons in the past. Draft analysts have likened the up-and-coming teenager to Orlando Magic's Jonathan Issac.

"Kuminga's combination of physical tools, skill set, scoring ability, defensive versatility, long term upside and upward trajectory over the past two years are among the reasons he's considered a special prospect in the 2021 class. Kuminga has impressive athleticism and fluidity, and while he plays primarily on the wing, he's versatile, skilled and tough enough to be equally effective playing inside and out. While there's room for improvement, his jump shot continues to make stride, as does his post and mid-post game. It's also promising that as Kuminga has gotten older, his game has steadily progressed. At this stage, he's the clear No. 1 prospect in the 2021 class," Evan Daniels wrote for 247Sports.
