NBA Comparison: Tony Delk

Strengths: Has the ability to score in bunches and take over games … Great offensive repertoire and can score in variety of ways … Above average speed and athleticism … Solid defender with quickness to stay in front of his man … Was given a big load (responsibility) in his freshman year and responded well … Very coachable player who Billy Donovan speaks highly of … Good all-around game, has the potential to be more than just a scorer … A bigtime competitor with a killer instinct. Really relishes having the ball in his hands at the end of close games …

Weaknesses: Was a top 10 recruit throughout his high school career, but due to positional issues his pro outlook isn’t as bright as his high school and college career appear to be … Much more of a small 2 than a true point guard … Awkward, herky jerky looking shot (shoots from right above his forehead) … Not a very efficient shooter (37.6% from field), but should improve with fresher legs this year … Was a highly inefficient three point shooter (29%) as a freshman (72-245) but continued to launch … Needs to become more consistent … Very streaky, can get really hot or really cold … Lacks NBA size for a 2 guard, and needs to add muscle to his frame … Should get to the line more often than he does … Still unclear whether he can truly become a point guard … His vision and passing skills are very average for a floor general … Ball handling is decent but can also improve …

Strengths: One of the most intense and aggressive players in his class … Has an assassin’s mentality and does not let up … Plays with a ton of confidence, never shying away from an opponent … He is a natural scorer and boasts a complete package on the offensive end … He is able to use his quickness and athleticism to get into the lane and finish with authority or creativity … Around the hoop he utilizes a very soft touch, laying the ball of the glass or shooting floaters from close in … His jumpshot looks a bit awkward, in large part because he shoots off the top of his head and he hangs too long before releasing it, but don’t mistake form for accuracy … When he gets into a rhythm he is one of the most dangerous players because he can shoot off the dribble, from deep and with people all over him and none of that matters … He has a very strong frame which allows him to absorb contact and still finish around the hoop … He gets off the ground very well and can hang in the air to finish over taller help defenders …

He is a player between positions, undersized for a SG and lacking playmaking skills for a PG … Is somewhat streaky, when things are going well his reckless abandon is impressive, but when he starts missing, things can go sour pretty quick because he does not know when to slow down … Needs to find more consistency on his jumpshot … He lacks a reliable in between game; he either strokes it from deep or he gets to the hoop … At the current level this is not a big problem because he finishes so well in traffic, but when he faces bigger and more athletic defenders, a reliable pull up jumper from mid-range will help him a lot …
