By: @JLHemingwayPSB & @BrandonClayPSB Player Evaluations

Date: January 15, 2017
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Hoop Hall Classic (Springfield, Massachusetts.)

King checks all the airport tests of a basketball player. He has size, wingspan and versatility. However, his game is not quite translating to production at the moment. He finished with only 4 points on 2-8 shooting, but he did grab nine rebounds.  An eye on his development heading into the spring months will be key.

Location: City of Palms Classic (Fort Meyers, Florida)

King is an athletic combo forward who is great in transition. He has length and the ability to attack off the dribble. He did not display much left to right wiggle scoring only 4 points to go with 6 rebounds in a win over Maret HS. Answering what his specialty or which position he will play long term will be key for King.

Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

King showcased himself as a potential elite specialist shooting the basketball. He did attack off of the bounce some as well but was more comfortable letting the ball go from beyond the arc.

King is a talented wing with size. He has an array of skills, but he struggled with efficiency this weekend.
