NBA Comparison: Flip Murray

Aran Smith - 3/7/2008

Strengths: Talented combo guard with excellent NBA potential ... Prolific scorer, (over 25 ppg) ... Has a quick first step and a killer crossover allowing him to blow by defenders and get into the paint ... Does a good job of creating baskets for himself and others ... Has precision passes for ally oops even from well beyond the three point arc ... drives exceptionally well, with defenses collapsing on him ... Has a great shot off the dribble, and is able to hit it going straight up or fading away ... Has a terrific body for a point guard with size, length and strength ... Can put points up in a hurry. Advanced mid-range game ... Shows excellent vision and passing ability ... A great defender. A bigtime ball hawk, fourth in the nation in steals ... Shows great anticipation and his quick hands and feet make him a tremendous on ball defender ... Gets good lift on his shot and shows a solid shooting form ... An excellent shooter with 3-point range and consistency on his shot. Shoots threes at a high volume and great efficiency ... His form and strength should allow him to step back 5 feet and hit the pro three with consistency in time ... His body strength allows him to finish after contact, play physical and also helps his range ... Knocks down free throws at a high percentage >80% ... Solid rebounder for his position. Plays bigger than 6-3 with his long wing span ... Unlike many prolific scorers, Hudson is unselfish getting teammates involved offensively, creating easy baskets for them ... Clutch player who comes up with big shots when his team needs them ... Highly competitive ...

Weaknesses: Has not played at a high level of basketball, with just one season of Div 1 under his belt at UT Martin ... Playing in the Ohio Valley Conference, his exploits are questioned ... It's tougher to project him for the next level playing against lesser players ... Ends up playing off the ball a bit because hes so effective scoring ... He shows quality passing and ball handling ability, but can he run a team? ...Must develop his point guard instincts, controlling tempo and overall PG duties ... Still needs to prove himself as a floor general. Very creative passing the ball, but will need to cut down on turnovers ... Not incredibly explosive. He's a strong athlete without question but is quicker and stronger than he is explosive ... Will turn 24 in August, which diminishes his intrigue some ... His long road to Div 1 basketball is a story of perseverance, but also leaves scouts with cause for concern ... Having lacked structure and discipline for a few years following high school, Hudson appears to be a changed man with a new found maturity ...
