Weaknesses: Relies too heavily on the three-point shot at times. While that may be a product of Dukes offensive system, Nelson would benefit from attacking the basket more rather than settling for the long-range shot Free-throw shooting has been unspectacular in his three years at Duke (53%, 65%, 59%). Could average around 18 points per game if he could convert free throws at an average rate for a SG Ballhandling and playmaking skills are there, but he doesnt utilize them, partly because of the role he plays in the Blue Devil offense Had a terrible assist/turnover ratio last season (0.8/1) and has never had more assists than turnovers in his three years of college ball. Will have to improve upon that number to convince NBA GMs that he can be a shooting guard at the next level.
Notes: Nelson holds the all-time scoring record for California HS basketball with 3,462 points. The 63 wing also racked up 1,522 rebounds in his high school career, which ranks an incredible third all-time in the state of California. His 791 career assists are ninth all-time in the state Led the West team with 22 points in the 2004 McDonalds All-American game Averaged 24.5 points per game for the West in the USA Mens Basketball Youth Development Festival in 2003Is a high-character kid who is very active in the Duke community.
