Tucker is a shooter with a quick release. He is solid and plays under control on the perimeter. He showed an efficient shot fake and pull-up along the baseline to compliment his 3pt jumper.

Tucker is a strong wing player who attacked off of the bounce more than in previous evals. He hit a tough 15 footer pull up jump shot. Tucker created some space with his footwork to score.

Tucker has legit size as a wing forward. He showed range on his jumper. His numbers reflect a consistent production scoring 11 points per game and shooting over 40% from beyond the arc. Combine that with nearly 5 rebounds per game and Tucker elevated himself into another category this weekend.

Tucker has the size on the wing to be a consistent threat from the perimeter. He is a shooting specialist but struggled a bit to create off of the bounce in this eval. That said, Tucker’s skill and size combo make him one of the tougher sharp shooters that I’ve seen in the class.

Tucker is a long option on the wing. He was good here but didn’t showcase a specific speciality in this eval. Keep an eye on his development in that regard as Tucker isn’t an overly dominant physical specimen.
