Antoine Agudio-Hofstra

This guy is getting looks from some teams. What do you think of him? He is a dead on shooter and works his butt off. Why doesnt NBADRAFT.NET have a profile about him? He is late 2nd round to undrafted, most experts say.

Antoine Agudio

I completely agree, from the video and live game action I've seen this player is a more athletic/NBA ready version of J.J. Reddick, in the sense that he has the lights out shooting ability extended beyond NBA range, along with the quickness, sound ball-handling and strength to penetrate and finish at the rim with a variety of moves. Just his athleticism, defense and top-flight shooting ability should land him a high to mid 2nd round selection. Agudio has immense potential, especially when compared to other specialist players who get adequate playing time on NBA rosters, i.e. Matt Carroll. Every team in the league could use a player who can open up the lanes and extend the defense like Agudio can.

As pointed out by the original poster, it does seem a little inconsistent of nbadraft.net to not have a profile on Agudio. Especially when he led the CAA in scoring, broke the 3 point record at Hofstra, which has had a history of N.B.A. players come through the system such as Speedy Claxton. Other sites such as draftexpress have extended coverage of Agudio and consider his shooting ability exceptional. I hope draft.net looks into this player and if he is getting attention in the 2nd round.

Yup I forgot to mention

Yup I forgot to mention Draftexpress. I really hope he gets picked. The Knicks worked him out and he said he did good. The Knicks need somebody that plays with HEART and Agudio will give you that every time he is on the court.

Agudio

I agree with you guys totally, I think Agudio could fit in with what the Knicks are trying to do, and I also think he could make the league. I think the guy has a ton of potential and heart. Its sad that he never got the opportunity to play in "The Big Dance".
