NBA Comparison: Dimitris Diamantidis (offensively), Zoran Planinic

Strengths: A combo guard with good scoring instincts and advanced passing ability … Has a natural feel for the game and is able to see plays well before they materialize, allowing him to deliver passes that seem impossible to make … At 6’6 he has great size for a guard (as it allows him to see over top of defenders, but it also makes him a difficult matchup) … He has good potential to play in a pick and roll system, because he is good at keeping his dribble alive and drawing the rotation … Has crafty moves off the dribble, and uses his long strides to get past defenders … Can use either hand to finish at the basket … Split time between both guard positions, and was able to bring a nice mix of attributes to both spots … Showed the ability to operate without the ball and come off screens … Has become a better shooter from the outside, stretching his range and improving his percentages … Solid contributor on the glass as well as in the steals department … Plays with a lot of passion and confidence, he is not afraid of throwing difficult passes or taking big shots … Has proven that he can perform in key moments against top level collegiate competition … Continued to improve various facets of his game throughout his career …

Weaknesses: Lacks the first step to explode by defenders … Has a hard time turning the corner, and usually has defenders riding his hip … He is not an aggressive player and has trouble against defenders who get into his body … Not a great finisher inside, he doesn’t have great strength or body control to complete plays through contact … Can be very erratic with the ball and with his passing (taking way too many risks)… Shoots a slight set shot, which takes longer to release and allows the defense to recover … Not a great shooter off the dribble, does not have great rhythm and elevation, which is the cause of inconsistent results from midrange … Does not project well as a defender at the next level, lacks the lateral quickness and does not put forward much of an effort on that end … Will have a hard time containing either guard position off the dribble … Is an arrogant player, which is sometimes a positive, but he needs to learn to control his emotions and not cross the line …

Strengths: Vasquez displays incredible on-court intensity and passion for the game … He can control the game when his emotions take over and his shots start falling … He attacks the rim relentlessly and has a knack for getting himself into the lane… His court vision, especially from the perimeter, is outstanding and his passing ability is notable … His stamina seems endless, it’s obvious he works hard on conditioning … He possesses great size for a point guard … His length allows him to disrupt passing lanes and his intensity could translate into him becoming a stand-out defender one day … He has a tendency to step up in big games … Excellent rebounder for his position …

Weaknesses: Vasquez plays out of control at times, and still displays questionable decision making … His cockiness exceeds his abilities … He is far too physically weak and struggles to finish when drawing any sort of contact. He appears to be a guy that will always be on the thin side … He has very poor range on his jump shot, and will struggle to force opponents to guard him close, limiting the efficiency of his driving ability … When attacking the rim, he puts his head down, reducing his passing effectiveness … His on-ball defense is shaky and inconsistent … He lacks balance in his game, still unable to effectively balance distributing and scoring … He has not shown any post-up game, an essential skill for a big point guard … His intensity can be overbearing. He must learn to direct his energy and intensity better. Vasquez is also a full year old for his grade limiting his upside some …
