2011 Las Vegas AAUs: Day 3
By Ian Powers
Jabari Parker, 6'8" 220, Simeon, Chicago, ILL, SF, 2013 - Parker was back to his old tricks at the Fab 48 tournament. He allows the game to come to him and never forces or rushes anything. He turned it up a notch in the second half of both games, Sunday. He knocked down a beautiful 17 foot - step back jumper on the baseline in his afternoon game that followed two baseline dunks that energized his team. In the evening he finished with a powerful dunk over two defenders after a baseline spin move off of the right box. He is special. There isn't anything he can't do on the basketball court and his demeanor never changes.
Isaac Hamilton, 6'5" 190, Crenshaw, Los Angeles, CA, SG, 2013- The younger brother of NBA rookie (Denver) Jordan Hamilton was impressive Sunday afternoon. He had his jumper working and he was relentless in putting the ball on the floor and attacking the basket. He is a confident and aggressive scorer. He rarely takes bad shots and plays hard at all times. He is tracking as a scorer who can fill it up. He's a good not great athlete who still has some upside left.
Grant Jerrett, 6'9" 220, La Verne, CA, La Verne Lutheran, PF, 2012 - Jerrett had an efficient game Sunday morning. He showed his high skill level and upside. He was able to show the range on his jumper and he also displayed his high level post moves and soft touch around the basket. He still needs to add strength and isn't the prettiest player to watch, but his skill level and length cannot be ignored.
Kaitin Reinhardt, 6'5" 185, Dana Point, CA, Mater Dei, SG, 2012 - Reinhardt is a high major shooter. He knocked down deep threes and mixed in some moves off the bounce to get into the lane and score. He can play some point in stretches and is enough of a playmaker to steal some minutes at that spot for his team. He recently decommitted from USC and there are a number of high majors after him.
Ishmail Wainwright, 6'6" 215, Raytown, MO, Raytown South, 2013 - Wainwright is a hard nosed, big bodied athlete who does all of the little things to help a team win. He will most likely never be a big scorer, but he has enough ball skills and shooting ability to earn your respect. Where he excels is on the defensive end of the floor. He uses his strength, length, and athletic ability to lock down his man and accepts the challenge of guarding your best player. He is the type of guy that won't wow you with stats but help a team win.
Tyler Lewis, 6'0" 170, Statesville, NC, Forsyth Country Day, PG, 2012 - Lewis is a high level small and smart Point Guard. He runs his team, creates for others, and can score the ball as well. He is fearless on the floor and will do almost anything to win. He had a tooth loosened from a blow to the face and pulled it out in order to stay in the game. He is an NC State commit and will help the Wolfpack in the tough ACC.
Andrew White, 6'6" 210, Colonial Heights, VA, Miller, SG/SF, 2012 - White has seen his recruitment pick up recently and he showed why at the Fab 48. He is a great spot up shooter and has an NBA ready frame. He plays hard and puts in a solid effort on the defensive end. He didn't show much in terms of ability to get to the basket and he's just a solid athlete, but he can help a team win a lot of games with his shooting ability alone.
Kaitin Reinhardt reminds me of what marco belinelli was supposed to be
That's a really good comparison. Reinhardt is alotta fun to watch. A college coach will help him hone in some of his flahiness to make him even more effective.
