NBA Comparison: Michael Redd (less athletic)

Strengths: Very talented player with a complete offensive arsenal ... A very smart player offensively who rarely forces anything ... Uses screens well to get himself open for jumpshot (most frequently he will catch and shoot coming off of screens) ... Possesses outstanding elevation on his jump shot, with a quick release and nice follow trough ... Effective around the basket on out to the NBA 3 point line ... Dionte has improved his mid-range game and appears to be a much better shooter off the dribble than last year ... If his shots are not falling, he'll look to other methods of scoring: attacking the basket ... Dionte can put the ball on the floor and create his own shot from anywhere on the floor (has an effective crossover that he uses well and a solid first step) ... If he gets into a rhythm, he is very difficult to guard ... Knows where to spot up and move offensively in order to position himself for shots ... Very unselfish player with solid passing ability ... Recognizes the double-team every time and finds teammates ... His shot is very difficult to block due to his long arms ... Solid defender with good lateral quickness and length ... His basketball IQ is well above average for a college player and being a four year guy only helps ...

Weaknesses: Shot selection can be much better (at times he takes contested shots). Can be turnover prone ... Must work on his ball handling ability, cut down on turning the ball over, which is usually a function of trying to do too much ... Improving his dribbling ability would allow him to be better creating off the dribble and maximize mid-range potential ... Should also learn to play with his back to the basket and post up smaller defenders better.

Strengths: Bigtime scoring 2-guard with strong shooting ability and solid length ... Runs the floor well showing good agility and fluidity ... Had a breakout sophomore season where he raised his scoring average from 3.5 ppg to 20.0 ppg ... Really excels at drawing fouls and converting (87%FT) from the line ... Has excellent passing ability, makes solid decisions, and plays unselfish ... Shot a high percentage from the floor at 46% and 40% from 3, displaying a disciplined shot selection ... Gives good effort and shows solid fundamentals defensively, has good foot speed and anticipation (1.4 spg) ...

Weaknesses: A little on the small side at 6-5 ... Needs to get stronger, add some weight to his frame to be able to finish stronger on drives and play more aggressively ... A solid athlete but nothing extraordinary, doesn't jump out of the gym, but his length and fluidity give him nice potential as a scorer ... Must become more proficient at creating shots for himself. Right now he's much better at catch and shoot, than shooting off the dribble ...
