Prospect Analysis

Strengths:

 

  • Excellent size and wingspan for position
  • Fluid, mobile and coordinated
  • Can be a top wing defender
  • Good passing skills and court vision
  • Very athletic

 

Weaknesses:

 

  • Shooting needs considerable improvement
  • Turnover prone, poor offensive decision making
  • Focus and attitude a question, poor body language
  • Needs more consistent effort

 

NBA Projection:

He has the NBA physical profile for a wing, with his height and wingspan. He figures to do the dirty work on defense until his offense comes around.  Likely a mid-2nnd round selection.

 

2013-2014 Season:

His contribution was more on defense this season as he only scored in double figures in five out of 27 games in his first season in "Pro A". Inglis is still very young, only 18 years old during the season. At the U18 European Championships in Latvia he averaged 11.8 points, 7.4 rebounds, and  3.9 assists over nine games.

 

Key Statistics:

4.6 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 1.0 apg, 15.3 mpg, .550 2PT, .387 3PT, .724 FT (France)

 

Cool Statistic:

Inglis pulled down a season high 11 rebounds in a late season game against Strasbourg.

 

Reminds Me Of:

Nicolas Batum in time.

 

 

 

What Insiders say:

Kris Habbas, NBA Draft Insider

“Rugged tough athlete that has the physical build of an NBA three and the potential to be a hard-nosed defender at the professional level. His length (7-3) is terrific for a wing at the NBA level and allows him to make plays on the defensive end in passing lanes. On the offensive end he is a work in progress, but has shown the potential to be an average-to-good shooter, handles the ball loose, but overall well, and is a very willing passer. High upside with Inglis if he develops a consistent jump-shot with his professional ready defensive "

 

Sam Meyerkopf, Euroleague Adventures

" When I watched Inglis step on to the court at the Euroleague’s NIJT Championships last May in London, he looked like he was made to play basketball.  Long but still strong, with great height for a wing at 6’9”, Inglis just screams athlete.  But in the games, Inglis just doesn’t seem to have the desire yet or developed skills to make a big impact.  Although he can handle the ball, is a good passer, and can be an effective slasher, he doesn’t really have a go-to skill.  He’ll be drafted on the potential that he could be scary, Nicolas Batum like defensively."

 

Robert White, ProspectNext.com

"Inglis is a ‘do it all’ small forward with the potential to be one of the steals of the Draft. He’s a good athlete, has a great frame and fantastic size for his position, including 7’3 wingspan. He can score off the dribble, in the post and knock down the outside jumper, but more valuable may be his pass first mentality and vision."
