Evaluation: Perea could very easily be a top-50 prospect or even a top-30 prospect, but his lack of development has disappointed me. He’s an incredible athlete, a terrific rebounder and great in transition, but he’s still very raw on the offensive end accumulating most of his points off of put-backs and tip-ins. He has a high ceiling and outstanding upside but he needs to increase his rate of improvement. He could develop into a very good player for Indiana head coach Tom Crean or end up being just a contributor, it’s all up to him.
