NBA Comparison: Marcus Williams/Shaun Livingston (smaller)

Strengths: A multi-talented combo guard who has shown the ability to run a team on a full time basis … He has been asked to play both of the guard positions in his senior season and he has preformed extremely well … Handles the ball comfortably and has good change of direction moves that allow him to get to the basket ... Has terrific length and size as a playmaker and is able to use them both when finishing at the basket or to see overtop of the defense ... He is a solid shooter, showing the ability to knock down shots from beyond the arc with his feet set ... Also comfortable shooting off the dribble, he elevates extremely well and is able to pull up with very good rhythm … He doesn't settle from the outside, but looks to get into the paint both in the half court and in transition ... A good athlete with an aggressive approach, he can get to the basket and finish strong or draw contact … He is not afraid of sacrificing his body and he has a knack for drawing fouls … Has a natural ability to find open teammates with pinpoint passing ... A crafty distributor and playmaker, he is very good at forcing the defense to rotate and making passes once he gets into the gaps … Has a good mix of tools to defend both guard positions successfully …

Weaknesses: Even though he shoots the ball right handed from the outside, he plays like a left handed player and is uncomfortable dribbling the ball or finishing at the basket with his right hand … He becomes predictable because he will look to switch the ball to his left hand even in situations when a right handed finish is the most high percentage shot … A very streaky shooter, he needs to get into a rhythm before he can make shots … He shoots slightly off balance and with low arc, making it hard for him to get favorable bounces on the rim ... He is an extremely turnover prone player, he goes too fast too often and tends to force passes that have no chance of being completed ... Needs to become better at controlling tempo and seeing the numbers before attacking in transition … As a defender he needs to become more disciplined and focused on preventing penetration …
