NBA Comparison: Qyntel Woods/Ricky Ledo

Strengths: Big guard with great versatility to play 3 positions … Has logged time at point guard … Explosive, smooth and creative player … A good ball handler … Can use a cross over at a high rate of  high speed … A good passer with court vision, always looking for the open man … Smooth. Runs the court very well, excellent in fast break situations, often finishing with dunks … Has a great ability to attack the rim with an arsenal of moves …  Can use the Euro step, change directions, fakes, finger rolls, floaters … A good shooter from 2 and 3 points, with deep range and good mechanics on his shot … The kind of player capable of creating baskets for himself and for his teammates … Can drive to the basket and open the court and dish for shots for his teammates, or find the bigman under the rim … Good shot blocker, with good timing , very smart playing the passing lanes, anticipates well and also in running the fast break … Great length, with a wingspan of 7-foot-1, and a standing reach of 8-foot-8 … Came into the draft proces weighing 181, and has added 14 pounds of muscle (195 lbs now) showing excellent dedication …

Weaknesses: Lack of experience playing at a high level combined with his age (22) … Needs to work a lot on his body strength, must continue to put a lot of muscle in order to handle contact at the NBA level … His shot selection needs to improve … He is an elite level player but hasn’t learned how to play against elite level competition … His body strength will be a problem in 1 on 1 defense, he can’t handle standard SFs at this point, and needs to learn to be more active on rebounds …

Notes: Had his season with his Juco team cancelled in 2014-15 … Considered a possible mid second rounder. Has worked out with a number of NBA teams and even received some late first round buzz … Signed with Westchester Community College, after originally being classified as a Class of 2015 HS prospect …
