NBA Comparison: Jerome Randle

Strengths: Crafty scorer who can find holes in the defense … Passing skills have developed nicely over the past season … Has a knack for coming up big in the clutch … Good speed … Excellent quickness with a first step that allows him to blow by defenders … Natural leader … Measured better than expected at combine … Fantastic athletic aptitude with nice leaping ability … Able to deceive defenders with ball fakes while on the move … Able to get into the paint and create … Excellent at using his body to protect the ball from bigger, stronger opponents … Capable shooter with range to the three point line

Weaknesses: Very small, even for a point guard … Ability to get inside will be largely negated by the size of NBA players … Shoot first point guard who sometimes struggles with turnovers … Will struggle to matchup with NBA guards defensively … Sometimes hurts his team by trying to make highlight reel plays instead of making the simple pass … Prone to over-dribbling … Spent much of his time in college playing shooting guard … Will force his offense at times … Can get caught trying to leak out for fast breaks too often …
