NBA Comparison: Derrick Walton

Strengths: Pretty quick defender, does a good job moving his feet. Alert on defense, switches and reads the offense and recovers well ... Always gets a hand up ... Improved his ability to get steals, averaging a career-high 1.3 steals per game in his senior year ... Handles the ball well ... Knows how to use his quickness to get to the hole ... Not afraid of contact ... Finishes well around the rim ... Very fast in transition, has a lot of burst to get to the rim ... Smooth motion at the foul line (improved his free throw shooting from 77.2% in his junior year to 83.7% in his senior year) ... Four-year player at Arizona State ... Very comfortable as a floor general ... Knows when to look for the open big man inside ... He did a really good job of scoring in college, averaging 18.2 points per game in his senior year on 36.9% shooting from 3-point range and 40.7% from the field ... Has a quick release ... Not afraid to take the big shot ... Had a career-high 40 points vs. #15 Xavier on November 24, 2017 ... Has the ability to “go off.” ... He did a good job of getting better each year at ASU ... He improved his rebounds per game, points per game, and field goals per game every season ... His free throw percentage and 3-point percentage improved as well ... His assist numbers (3.4 assists per game) aren’t an accurate reflection of his ability to facilitate ... He was asked to score at ASU more than anything else ...

Weaknesses: Will turn 23 in September, limiting his perceived upside ... Due to his lack of size and length (6’1”, 180 pounds), Holder has difficulty scoring over taller defenders ... While he does of a good job of getting into the paint, it’s sometimes hard for him to get a good shot off ... His lack of size also makes him a potential defensive liability at the next level ... While he is alert and quick on defense, he will need to add more muscle and strength to handle the physicality of NBA point guards ... Will need to adjust his role in the NBA ... He won’t be a first option in the NBA like he was at ASU ... He will need to evolve into more of a pass-first complimentary kind of point guard in order to stick in the league ...

Overall: Tra Holder is a talented guard ... He knows how to score and keeps finding ways to improve his game ... He has NBA level quickness and should be able to hang with NBA speed ... If he can adjust to not being the first scoring option and overcome his lack of size, he could find a home in the NBA ...
