Sharife Cooper Highlights

Sharife Cooper Draft Profile

Strengths

Cooper is one of, if not the best, passer in the 2021 NBA Draft. He is able to utilize a wide variety of dribble moves that allow him to slip by defenders and get to the rim where he can finish with both hands. Sharife Cooper also displays potential for improved shooting numbers. He will one day be more than capable of running an NBA offense.

Weaknesses

Cooper may have shot well from the free-throw line, but his three-point shooting leaves much to be desired. Cooper is a supremely talented passer, but he can get himself in trouble with risky passes.
