2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Athletically he possess freak like ability to jump out of the gym and run the floor like a gazelle ... Really excels when playing in a fast paced system ... Excellent finisher in transition where he is able to make jaw dropping dunks ... Extremely long arms and explosiveness enable him to be a shot blocking force ...Mid range shooting has greatly improved to the point where he can make the 16 footer with some regularity ... Defensively he shows tremendous promise as he possesses leaping ability, quick hands, great lateral movement and very long arms ... Not a bad ball handler able to take the ball the length of the court ... Unselfish. Sees the floor well enough to recognize open teammates ...When he does post up he shows refined post footwork ... Active player who is a constant threat for alley-opps close to the basket... Hasn't even scratched the surface of his enormous potential... Has three point range on his jumpshot... Due to his mobility Outlaw is a great help defender... Not a bad shooter off the dribble as he does a excellent job of keeping his body balanced ...

Weakness: Must gain some serious upper body strength and weight... Does play defense with full effort ... Too often Outlaw gives the impression that he is coasting ... Improvement in his back to the basket skills will really benefit him on mismatch opportunities ... Court awareness isn't fully develop as he doesn't fully understand the game yet... Rebounding will need to be upgraded ... Throughout his career he has relied on his jumping ability, now he must learn technique ... Lack of strength allows him to easily get boxed out... Not as effective of a player when playing within a half court set ...Perimeter shooting has greatly improved but remains inconsistent ... Must work on taking his defender off the dribble if he is to play small forward in the NBA ... Although not soft, Outlaw is not a big fan of physical contact... Shot selection can be questionable at times if he gets frustrated ... Needs to take the ball to the basket with more authority instead of settling for jumpers ... Moving without the ball is adequate but he needs to show he can play in a system ... Must work on becoming a better three point shooter ...
