NBA Comparison: AJ Price

Strengths: Young lead guard with upside ... Has ideal size for a point guard in the NBA, standing 6'3.25" in shoes with a 6'5.5" wingspan ... Well-rounded athlete ... Good speed with the ball in his hands ... Solid strength with the frame to potentially add a little more muscle ... Aggressive in transition, displaying good instincts and finishing ability ... Great perimeter shooting ability ... A very natural spot-up shooter from mid to long range ... Shot a very respectable 41.3% from behind the arc this season ... Adequate passing ability and he doesn't turn the ball over a lot (averaged over 2 assists per turnover) ... Keeps his teammates involved ... Not a selfish player by any stretch ... Only recently turned 20 years old and has a lot of room to improve ... A very solid defender with strong potential. Rick Barnes called him the best defensive guard he's had ... Very solid person, impressive character ...

Weaknesses: Very green as a prospect and leaving college so prematurely as a PG could severely inhibit his long term development ... Is currently more of a shooter than a scorer ... Very raw as a floor general and some question if he's more of a combo than true PG ... Shared ball-handling responsibilities at Texas, and never had the chance to really show off his creativity with the ball ... Not used to creating offense for himself off the dribble ... Doesn't look comfortable around the rim ... Great shooting numbers from outside, but shot only 42.8% from inside the arc which points to his mediocre slashing/cutting skills ... Playmaking ability has potential, but he has a lot to learn before he can be considered a quality full-time point guard ...

Overall: Ideally Joseph would have stayed another few years at Texas where he could have continued to see a lot of playing time and improve his all-around game ... Instead he chose to take advantage of the weak draft class and declare as a freshman with the hopes of being drafted now instead of competing with incoming point guard Myck Kabongo next season ... Could be an interesting second round pick if a team falls in love with his potential and is willing to invest in and wait for him ...
