NBA Comparison: Jordan Clarkson/Victor Oladipo

Current Ability: 6.5

Projection as an NBA Player: 7 - Potential to be more if he improves his defense

Projected Draft Spot: Late 1st Round

Opinion: Bacon has good size for a SG and is a great person. He is a bulldozer getting to the hoop. When he decides he is driving, he is hard to stop. Bacon is a good 3 point shooter but not much of a passer. His defense is below average. Bacon has starter potential but he needs to improve his defensive effort. I see him more as a 6th man scorer off the bench.
