Dylan Windler 

Post#1 » by 916fan » Fri Feb 15, 2019 10:00 pm

6'8 200lb SF senior out of Belmont. Haven't seen his name talked about at all, but he's a legitimate NBA prospect for this upcoming draft.

Here's his stats for the year:
33mins: 20.8pts 10.5rebs 2.5asts 1.5stls 0.8blks 2.2tos

Shooting splits:
53.7/40.9/82.5





Physical profile:
-Good height for the wing
-Average length
-Average athleticism
-Above average lateral quickness
-Lacks strength

Positives:
-3pt shooting ability
-Off ball movement
-Average ball handling for size
-Can play above the rim
-Rebounding ability(crashes the boards on both ends)
-Solid defender, shows potential on the defensive end against smaller guards
-Solid IQ

Negatives:
-Lacks physicality on both ends
-Lack of an in-between game
-Despite solid IQ, not much of a playmaker
-Struggles against better competition (had 2 of his worst games against UCLA(won) and Purdue (lost). Belmont is 20-4 for the season)

He's got the size and adequate athleticism to be an NBA player. I think he could be a good 3&D player in the NBA once he gets stronger. I have a 1st round grade on him.

He hasn't performed against legit competition, likely because of his lack of athleticism. Nice write up, though.

I don't think he'll crack the top 45 because it's pretty deep, but he's a highly skilled and productive player with good size, I could see him finding a role in the NBA.

I don’t see it at all. He really really struggles against athleticism, even Murray state’s athletic ability bothered the hell out of him and he overall competition he plays is atrocious. I don’t think he has a position to guard in the nba, don’t think he can hang on the perimeter and he absolutely cannot guard 4s (or anybody in the paint where he gets rag dolled).

I will say that his highlight mix makes him look substantially better than watching his full games IMO.

Where do you play him in the nba? I don’t think he has the ball handling or burst to drive even with the threat of his shot. Maybe in a few years after bouncing around the G league or Europe he can carve out a spot but I just don’t see it right now.

He’s a stretch 4 in the NBA, but I personally don’t see him getting drafted. He can beat mismatches on offense.
