NBA Comparison: Orien Greene

Strengths: Great size for the PG position, has amazing physical tools to play basketball, 7’ 0” wingspan with huge hands and a strong body at his age at 200 pounds ... Possesses some intriguing PG skills, very good ball handling, with great crossovers, hesitation moves, change of directions, combo moves, creating plays for himself and teammates ... Knows how to post up smaller players ... Good court vision, always looking for the open man for a drive and dish, a creative passer ... From a defensive standpoint, he’s capable of defending on the ball, has good feet, and also good plays the passing lanes well with his amazing arms ... Has the potential to be very good on rebounds on both ends and block shots ... Can contest shots and disrupt jumpers ... Just 19 years old, so has time to improve ...

Weaknesses: Not an athletic player, doesn’t have great leaping ability and lacks an explosive first step ... Experience and feel for the game are low ... Has a tendency to over dribble ... Sometimes takes ill advised shots and misses opportunities because of that ... Doesn’t have a good midrange shot, and needs to improve his shot selection ... Form and fundamentals on his shot are bad ... Has a long, looping release which makes it difficult for him to get it off, and difficult to replicate consistently ... Assist/TO rate is not good, makes bad decisions on the court causing TO ... Needs to be more unselfish and concentrate, doesn’t have great focus ... Need to improve his defensive skills, don’t have good fundamental skills on D, relies upon his amazing body ...

Notes: Full name is "George Lucas Alves de Paula" ... Measured 6' 4.5'' barefoot, 197.0 lbs, with a 7' 0'' wingspan, 8' 8'' standing reach, 6.70% body fat at the NBA draft combine ...
