NBA Comparison: Flip Murray/Delonte West

Strengths: Long and wiry combo guard … A crafty ballhandler that knows how to get defenders off balance with the dribble … Has a good repertoire of moves and mixes them up well to keep the defense guessing … He has a deceptive 1st step and shifty quickness making him difficult to contain on the perimeter … Is adept using both hands, either when attacking or finishing ... Uses his body as well as his length to finish around the basket … Utilizes a variety of floaters and runners in the lane … Likes to pull up from the midrange where he shoots with balance and good rhythm … Shows good speed in the open court and the ability to manoeuvre through traffic with the dribble while going full speed … Puts in a good effort defensively, where he enjoys being aggressive and pressuring ballhandlers … Has good hands, anticipates well and uses his wingspan to get many deflections … He is unselfish and possesses good court vision and has shown glimpses of being able to run a team full time …

Weaknesses: Had a very disappointing season in terms of the hype he had coming in from highschool ... Played out of position for the majority of the season, and struggled finding his comfort zone … Battled inconsistency with his shot all year and it threw the rest of his offensive game off balance … Defenses showed very little respect for his outside shot, daring him to shoot and taking away his driving lanes … His form is a big issue as it throws his stroke off and makes his release inconsistent … He shoots off the side of his head with the shooting elbow way out, as a result his shot is all over the place …He does not have the superb athleticism or strength like many other combo guards … Tends to waste dribbles on the perimeter, killing the flow of the offense because he can be a ball stopper at times … Gets into trouble by over penetrating and then trying to make the spectacular play while in traffic and under pressure … Settles for contested jumpshots from outside and takes a lot of fading and offbalance attempts inside … Leaves his feet to make passes and gets caught with no options … Is stuck between positions because he has not proven that he can be a consistent scorer or that his decision making will translate to the next level …

Strengths: Talented combo guard with a very smooth all around game ... Makes the game look easy, very focused, steps up his level of play in big situations ... Very determined, competitive player who takes over when it counts ... A scoring point, but has enough pg skills to play the position on the NBA level ... Very quick, athletic and explosive, gets by his man and to the rim with ease ... Shoots the ball well out to college three ... Very good in the full court game, able to find teammates on the break with great vision ... Great competitor, very composed, intelligent decision maker ... Gives good effort on the defensive end of the floor ... Quality kid with a strong work ethic ... Advanced offensively with the ability to pull up off the dribble and he also attacks the rim aggressively ... Plays very mature, under control, doesn't make unnecessary risks to dazzle ...

Weaknesses: Not a true point, more of a combo ... Must continue to develop his point guard skills ... Can learn to become a better floor general, distributing the ball, setting everyone up ... Needs to gain experience ... Must get stronger physically, to be able to finish off drives as well as shoot with more consistency ... His ball handling ability is solid, but can improve ...
