NBA Comparison: Shammond Williams

Strengths: His physical strength is imposing, and his best attribute, helping him on both ends of the floor … Very durable, started every single game during his 4 years at Syracuse … Hard working, his quiet demeanor does not diminish his leadership skills, he leads by example … Bounced back after having a junior season in which pts, rebs, asts all fell from sophomore season, as did his playing time … Started at PG his freshman year, moved off the ball to make way for players like Scoop Jardine and Michael Carter-Williams … Has the ability to play both guard positions at 6’3 … He is an underrated scorer, having the ability to score in a variety of ways, something he has worked extremely hard to develop … Has a ton of big game experience, against top talent both in game as well as practicing against his teammates … Solid in transition and a good finisher … Solid pick and roll skills as ball handler …

Weaknesses: Lacks a true position … Sub-par athleticism for an NBA guard … At times he’s not assertive enough, because he has a team first mentality to the point of being too unselfish … Despite being a senior his ISO skills and offensive game are just average. Also not a very efficient spot up shooter … Although his scoring ability is evident, he has the tendency to drift in and out of games. For a freshman this would be understandable, but for a senior who has started every game of his career it is not … Triche is seen as a solid defender but is undersized defending 2s at the next level … Transition from 2-3 to man-to-man could be difficult due to lack of experience, as well as foot speed …

Overall: Brings effort, and leadership, on both ends, but these alone are not enough to warrant an NBA draft spot. I foresee Brandon Triche getting some looks from NBA teams and posibly even getting drafted late in the 2nd round; ultimately I seem him either in the D-league or in Europe, where he’ll have the opportunity to be a productive player …
