NBA Comparison: N/A

Matthew Maurer – 1/12/2007

Strengths: Is an explosive scorer who can put up big numbers Has a good strong, NBA ready body Athletically Reynolds has great quickness and surprisingly solid leaping ability Does a good job of playing the passing lanes for quick steals Unselfish player who is a decent passer Has NBA three-point range on his jumpshot Uses his body strength on his drives to finish after contact Excellent finisher in the open court Moves without the ball very well Possesses a great first step to gain separation from most defenders Ball handling ability is good enough for him to play the point guard position For his size Reynolds is a solid rebounder Possesses a very good work ethic and has improved in some aspect of his game every year Shows a good pull-up jumpshot off the dribble from mid-range to 18 feet out

Weaknesses: Defensively Reynolds tends to gamble for steals leaving his assignment open Can play his man over-aggressively leading him to foul trouble Doesnt always seem to completely focus or provide intense effort on the defensive end Streaky shooter who can go through periods of inconsistency Possesses some point guard skills but lacks a few of the basic qualities you look for Despite being a solid passer his court vision is still not of the highest caliber Lacks the ability to effectively to control the tempo of a game Although Reynolds is well acknowledged by many as a combo guard he has a shooting guards game in a point guards body Shot selection is questionable as he can become too enamored with shooting from behind the arc Can play a little out of control especially when he attempts to go for the spectacular play Court awareness is questionable and Reynoldss decision making remains a work in progress Should concentrate on refining his ball protection skills as he has a tendency to be careless with the ball
