Peter Jok (SG/SF, Iowa)

 

Measurables: 6’6”, 6’8” wingspan, 202 lbs, 23.1 years old

Strengths

  • Extremely good free throw shooter (91% last season, 88% for career)
  • Improved drawing fouls during senior season
  • Better creator for others than other sharpshooters (17 AST%)
  • Very smooth 3 point shot, gets it off very quickly
  • Created a fair amount of 3-point off the dribble
  • Promise as ball handler in PnR
  • NBA range on 3 point shot
  • Can get shot off dribble, off screens
  • Makes winning plays – willing passer
  • Wingspan can help him on D when he’s locked in

Weaknesses

  • Already 23 years old
  • Rarely got to rim (14% of shots at rim)
  • Tendency to settle for mid-range shots hurt overall efficiency
  • Only slightly above average in mid range (41%)
  • Lack of explosiveness in traffic
  • Probably won’t venture inside arc at NBA level
  • Avoids finishing into contact near rim
  • Inconsistent on defense – doesn’t always play hard
  • Very poor defensive activity – 3 blocks all senior season
  • Doesn’t hustle in transition either direction
  • Closing out is a big problem for him – doesn’t chop his feet and doesn’t use 2 hands

Overall

  • Jok is one of the best shooters in this year’s class, with the ability to get his shot off from anywhere and spray. He also has showed a little bit as a playmaker last season at Iowa, a good sign for developing offensive versatility. However, he is a poor defensive player and doesn’t show a lot of effort on that end, even though he has a nice frame. Given his status as one of the oldest players in the draft, he’ll likely go undrafted and have to impress in summer league and preseason to crack a roster as an end-of-the-bench shooting option.
