Rui Hachimura Scouting Report

Player Comparison: Joakim Noah

Analysis: Rui Hachimura is much further along on the offensive end of the court than he is as a defender…a high energy player who is relentless as a rebounder…Hachimura has a NBA-ready made body that should be able to adept to the physical nature of the sport…Rui Hachimura has the ability to effect the game as an outlet passer—starting up an effect fast break offense…the primary issues with Hachimura are on the defensive end…whether he lacks the tenacity or the ability, Rui Hachimura has yet to perform consistently as either an on-ball defender or a rim protector…although his shooting ability is improving, he still has a long way to go in order to be effective in the NBA…has no 3-point game to speak of, which again, limits his overall effectiveness…a solid collegiate performer Rui Hachimura is likely to be selected somewhere from picks 10-20 in the 2019 NBA Draft.
