greivis vasquez, junior, university of maryland
i believe he has been mentioned on the forum before, but the kid is 6'6 and put up a 3 x 10 vs. unc today with 37 points. i see he is ranked 68th currently on nbadraft.net's big board, but is nowhere to be found on either the '09 or '10 mock draft. seems like he should be the first venezuelan born player in the nba since oscar torres to me, lets get him on the mock nbadraft asap.
Honestly probably a Marko Jaric will have to improve his outside shot and improve is shot selection and his descion making. But at 6'6 handles the ball like a point and could play it in the NBA. He has a lot of heart though when he gets a better coach than gary williams i think he could do more.
I've seen Grevis through the years he has the talent its just that he is streaky, he can put 30 points against UNC but 9 points against Virginia. He has great stamina but forces a lot of shots due to the quailty of teammates and plus he likes to shoot. he wil get looks but in the mid to late 2nd round.
the kid can deinately play, ive seen him in person twice and on tv a few. He was on fire this afternoon, really stepped up for his team. His game requires that he have the ball alot, I don't think he will be content to be a role player and his defense is bad and seems liek it will always be bad. He seems like he has to be the guy, and I dont think he is good enough to be the go to guy on a decent nba team. I see him bieng a less explosive Manu, maybe Marko Jaric was a pretty good one too.
If he wasnt sooo turnover prone he would get the opportunity 2 be a point in the nba...he has good handling ability and he plays with alot of passion, but he is super turnover prone and for that he probably wont get alot of love from the NBA just yet. He's gonna have to wait until his senior year, but he could be one of those players thats more effective the less he's used, but he does remind me of marko jaric out there,except he isnt as good a defender.
