Weaknesses: May struggle to find a good position in the NBA as upon appearance he looks to be closer to 6-3 1/2 – 6-4 than the 6-5 he is listed … Defensively he struggles to defend opposing players with great quickness While not terrible, his lateral quickness is below average Needs to become more assertive and fight through screens and picks better Not exceptionally creative generating offense for himself off the dribble. Keeps it simple Doesnt have a great first step which hampers him from gaining full separation from his defender, and thus less of a threat offensively Lacks the body control to finish in traffic on his drives to the basket Not a great shooter off the dribble as Haluska is better when his feet are set Can go through periods where his jump shot is inconsistent Does a good job of grabbing long rebounds but will not be a big rebounder on the NBA level At times makes his shot harder than it has to be as he tries to sell contact to the refs by flailing his arms and legs Potential isnt great as he is close to maximizing it
Weaknesses: A stand out track star in high school who shows off his excellent athletic ability in spurts (needs to be more assertive) His agility is good, but his aggressiveness going to the basket is limited some by his lack of physical strength Did not show significant improvement from his sophomore to junior seasons, his outside shooting numbers actually dropped (from 39% to 35%) At times he appears reluctant to take over More than a year older than the average Senior after sitting out two seasons (including his transfer year from Iowa St.)
Notes: Haluska will be called upon to take over a much bigger part of the scoring load after averaging 13.9 ppg as a junior. 2006-07 is his year to shine with the departure of Greg Brunner (14.1 ppg) and Jeff Horner (13.6 ppg). The pressure will be on as opposing teams will surely focus their defensive strategies around stopping him
