NBA Comparison: Francisco Garcia

James Burbridge – 10/3/2007

Strengths: Terrific outside shooter, a marksman from 3 pt. territory, displays a picture perfect jump shot with lots of arc underneath it Shows the ability to drain shots even with defenders checking him closely Shot a staggering 86/172 from 3 point land as a sophomore (50%) which is a higher percentage than anyone in the top 100 3p FG made in the nation … Impressive scorer in the Big XII, averaging 11.8 ppg Has superb size for the NBA 2 guard spot at 67 Very smooth player, gives the impression that he is capable of continuing to improve his game A terrific defender due to his high level of effort and length, often asked to guard the opposition’s top scorer Shows nice passing skills, solid vision for a 2guard Has a chance to develop into a college star as all the pieces are there, the question is whether he will seize the opportunity and make a seamless transition from contributor to being the guy

Weaknesses: He needs to improve upon his one on one game with his driving ability and aggressiveness going to the basket, particularly at the end of games where his ex-teammate Acie Law was so good. A lot of those skills were underdeveloped playing alongside such a talent as Law, where often he could just spot up for open three point shots Added strength will give him the ability to drive to the basket with more authority and finish plays off His foot speed and leaping ability are solid but not off the charts limiting his upside to some extent Needs to work on becoming more of a vocal leader, hes a bit introverted Must raise his overall intensity level and consistency each time out …

Outlook: Carter will be asked to take over where former team leader and current Atlanta Hawks point guard Acie Law IV left off With Law gone, the perimeter offense will be focused around Carter. Luckily for him he has two very capable players underneath in DeAndre Jordan and Joseph Jones, so that should take some of the pressure off of him.

Notes: Brother of former Illinois forward Warren Carter.
