WAS Forward: 6’11, 200 lbs; 3rd year, Syracuse

NBA Role: (raw) scoring forward UnderDOG

Former Syracuse forward Chris McCullough is very raw – while his upside is tremendous, he just might need some time to hone his skills; high, high-upside forward – could have gone in the 2015 lottery were it not for an ACL tear midway through yr. 1 w/ ‘Cuse; has a few skills you look for in modern forwards: can handle the ball a bit, shoot from outside & rebound; learning how to defend NBA players but McCullough’s already promising offensively – good athlete w/ a nice-looking J that extends out to long-range, uses long arms to score off the bounce; shot selection is an issue, needs to get stronger; acquired by WAS at the deadline (Feb. ’17) – intriguing project under Scott Brooks

DOG Status: UnderDOG
