NBA Comparison: Eddie House
Strengths: Prolific shooter/scorer who exploded onto the scene after being lightly recruited out of high school … Once McClinton transferred from Siena to Miami (Fla.), he quickly became one of the most dangerous 3-point shooters in the college game … McClinton shot 45 percent from deep last season and showed that he could pull up off the dribble and drain a 3-pointer with defenders draped all over him … He is equally adept at catching-and-shooting …Though he’s widely known as a 3-point marksman, McClinton is an underrated athlete who can slash to the basket and create for himself … He’s much more than just a spot up jumpshooter … Uses good creativity when attacking the basket. Can shoot at different angles and make good adjustments … Is strong enough to get into the lane and absorb contact … Plays with a great deal of confidence and almost comes off as being cocky … Showed some good leadership qualities as a senior at Miami.
Weaknesses: A tweener at this point … Can handle the ball fairly well, but never showed the ability to distribute and make his teammates better … Is not a true point guard … Size is also a concern. McClinton measured in at just under 6-foot-1 in shoes, which is small for a combo guard … Is an offensive minded player who needs to put more effort in to doing the little things … Overall athleticism is adequate, but he won’t dazzle anyone with it. Will probably have a tough time matching up man-to-man with NBA guards.
