Perkins is a big-time athlete that, with his length, plays much bigger than his listed height of 6-6. He is a high energy guy that makes high level plays around the rim. In one game at the Wallace Prather Memorial Classic he had five put back dunks after missed shots that had the small crowd in attendance in awe. Although he has a wing player's body, he is more serviceable as an undersized 4-man that can play with his face to the basket and drive it to the rim. He showed that he can make an uncontested 3, but was streaky from behind the arc throughout the weekend.
Perkins is a strong physical athlete that can finish plays above the rim, rebound and defend very well. He runs the floor every time and can score over or around defenders with his strength and great athletic ability. In the half court he slashes and power drives to the rim and he likes to use the spin move to get by his defender. He simply can over power smaller defenders and score. He is so athletic and strong on free throws he can fight through box outs and tip dunk in missed free throws. He can also defensive rebound and start the break. On defense he is capable of guarding positions 2-4 as well. Perkins needs to work on his scoring moves off the dribble and his perimeter jumper but he is very productive when ever he is on the floor.
Perkins is a super athletic wing that can score in a variety of ways. He sprints the lane in transition and is looking to attack the rim. If he has an angle or step on the defender a big time dunk will be the final result. In the half court he is an excellent slasher with a nice mid range game as well. He's a good, not great, shooter but is capable of getting on a roll from behind the arc and knocking down two or three in a row. He can drive either way but likes to shoot the pull up jumper or floater in the lane going to his right. When driving left he is usually trying to get all the way to the rim. He also moves well without the ball. Perkins likes to curl into the lane off a down screen and elevate into a turn shot in the middle of the lane. Also Perkins understands how to read dribble penetration and move into an open area for an uncontested three when his defender is forced to help. He is also a live body on the offensive glass. He is quick to the ball which makes him difficult to box out. The weight room along with being a consistent shooter behind the arc, are areas to improve in addition to having a better understanding of help side defense because at times he loses sight of the ball. Perkins is a player that can have a series of unbelievable possessions that could include a dunk in traffic, mid range pull up and a three. When he gets it going he is a treat to watch.
