Lebron Skills Academy Day Two Evaluations

The final day of the Lebron James Skills Academy saw numerous Arizona prospects in action. Read on to see how Jaylen Brown, Isaiah Briscoe, and more played.

LAS VEGAS - The final day of the Lebron James Skills Academy saw mixed results for Arizona targets. Read on for evaluations of how they did on Monday.

Parker Jackson-Cartwright: Once again, PJC chose to pass the ball rather than be aggressive offensively, but that is not a bad thing. Instead, it showed that he was able to recognize the situations around him in order to make sure his team was successful. We have seen Jackson-Cartwright enough to know what he can do and as long as he is healthy, chances are good that he is going to play well and be effective.

Isaiah Briscoe: Briscoe has faced off against Jordan McLaughlin twice this weekend and completely dominated him both times. We know Briscoe can score and he showed that ability again on Monday, but we were more impressed with his ability to run the point. We are hesitant to call him a point guard, but he might have enough skills to do it for short amounts of time. Briscoe's strength is one of his biggest assets right now and he knows how to use it in order to get to the basket consistently.

Ivan Rabb: It was a mixed day for Rabb, because he has shown glimpses of his ability, but also struggled to do so consistently. He is another player that has a ton of potential and ability and we know what he can do. He has not been completely healthy this weekend and it has shown in his motor, but we won't read too much into it because he remains great around the basket and blocking shots.

Thon Maker: Maker showed some improvement on the defensive end already in his second day of the camp. He was less aggressive towards shot blocking and it showed, as he was rarely caught out of position. Maker tried to play out along the arc, but was more effective on the offensive end when closer to the basket. The big man flashed good hands, but more strength will help him finish around the basket more consistently.

Malachi Richardson: It was solid day for Richardson fundamentally, but he was having some trouble hitting his shots. The junior continued to show nice form on his jump shot, but could not get many to fall. He found his way to the rim a few times, but was blocked on one and fouled on another. If Richardson can get his shots to drop,he could become a dangerous player.

Kameron Chatman: Chatman wasn't as aggressive as he was on Sunday, but was still able to do a little bit of everything. Nothing we saw on Monday is going to change our opinion of him. He is good enough to contribute right away, but a consistent jumper will make him elite. He does not have it yet, but he should be on his way.

Cliff Alexander: It was the same story for Alexander, who was completely dominant around the basket and stronger than everybody else. That turnaround hook that he has developed makes him even more dangerous and if he continues to develop his offensive game, his ceiling it'll get even higher. The team that gets Alexander is getting a player that can physically contribute right away and we have yet to meet someone that is not a fan of his game.

Jaylen Brown: Brown was elite on Monday, as he showed strong shooting ability and was finding teammates with fantastic passes as well. Brown has a mature game for a 2015 player and looks as if he can pay college ball right now because of the numerous ways he can effect the game. This weekend was our first time seeing him up closes, but we are excited to see him more.
