viktor-khryapa The Draft Review - The Draft Review new-jersey The Draft Review - The Draft Review

2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Smart, efficient player with great fundamentals ... A versatile player who has the ability to play multiple positions on the floor. Because of this he is able to produce mismatches that he uses to his advantage ... Moves well without the ball and constantly works to get open for the quick lay-in or short jumper... Has developed into a solid mid-range shooter although he is still far from perfect. He has shown considerable improvement from 15 feet out... A wonderful ball handler who is capable of leading the break or driving past his defender... Decent rebounder due to his long arms and above average leaping ability ... Excels in an open court offense as he is an adequate speed running the court and is a solid finisher in transition ... Khryapa is blessed with excellent court vision. Because of this he rarely gets trapped in double teams and always looks to set-up his teammates with the quick pass ... Has shown steady improvement and has great potential...

Weakness: Defensively he needs to work on his lateral quickness. He seems to struggle when having to defend athletic players on the perimeter... Unlike many of his European counterparts, Khryapa is not the seasoned pro many are at his age. The quality of his competition is questionable, limiting his development to an extent... Shooting mechanics need to be refined as he tends to bring the ball from his waist which produces a slow release, giving his defender time to block or steal the ball... Offensively his game remains somewhat predictable ... Confidence can wavier from time to time if he feels intimidated. Khryapa can freeze himself out of the game ... While he has back to the basket moves he doesn't posses the necessary bulk to withstand the physical pounding of the American game which will make it hard for him to set-up in the lane ... Although his shooting has improved tremendously this past year, he still has trouble shooting off the dribble as he is more of a set shooter. This could be a problem for him in terms of getting his shot off in the NBA ... Has yet to master the defensive fundamentals such as anticipation and timing that are required to be a shot-blocker... Doesn't possess consistent 3-point range on his shot...
