PG/SG, Australia. Orlando Magic. 15. 38. Pick Analysis. RJ Hampton. player. Scouting Report

Hampton falls out of the Lottery here, which is looking more and more like a real possibility. After being a top-five recruit out of high school, Hampton decided to forgo the NCAA and play professionally in Australia, to mixed results.

His career with the Breakers came to and end after just 15 games after he hurt his hip. He didn’t exactly blow scouts’ socks off by making less than 30 percent of his threes, shooting 40 percent from the field overall.

He can play both guard spots, although he’s more akin to a shooting guard in a point guard’s body. Hampton can finish with either hand at the rim, and will have a chance to record a highlight play anytime he touches the ball.

For Orlando, D.J Augustin and Michael Carter-Williams are both set to be free agents, with Evan Fournier owning a player option as well. Hampton may not fit Steve Clifford’s defensive-minded play style, but could be what they need offensively to compete for more than the eight seed.
