NBA Comparison: Tracy Murray

Strengths: Excellent shooter, particularly for his size. Had percentages of 60-49-80 last season ... Has a nice arsenal of post moves. Gets a lot of unorthodox buckets around the rim ... His offensive versatility makes him a matchup problem, as he can post up on the average small forward, but he can drag a power forward outside with his shooting ability ... Plays well off the ball. Gets a lot of open looks for himself from beyond the arc ... A true coach's son, McDermott has a high basketball IQ ... Good rebounder, especially for his size. Averaged 8.2 RPG last season ... Incredibly efficient overall player. Averaged 22.9 PPG last year on only 14.6 shots, and averaged 1.6 points per shot attempt ... Has a large frame which helps him gain position against smaller defenders ... Usually was able to maintain his elite level of production against high-quality opponents ... Extremely smooth shot release ... Potential to be a speciality shooter gives him added intrigue ...

Weaknesses:
He creates matchup problems on offense, but he is the matchup problem on defense, as he is a tweener who is too short and lacking in strength to guard the 4, but lacks the lateral quickness to guard 3's ... Has played a lot more 4 than 3 through his college career, will need to transition to playing much more on the perimeter ... Struggles to create his own shot on the perimeter. Ballhandling ability is subpar ... His inside scoring ability is severely limited when he goes up against NBA-sized big men ... Has a relatively big frame, but desperately needs to add muscle in order to utilize his post game ... Slow on closeouts due to his lack of foot speed ... Physical limitations are concerning ...

Notes: High school teammate of North Carolina's Harrison Barnes and member of the 2011 USA U-19 team ... Measured 6'8 (in shoes) 223 lbs, with a 6'8.5 wingspan at the 2012 Amare Stoudemire Skills Academy ...
