NBA Comparison: AJ Price

Strengths: Experienced college player who was a four year contributor, three year starter and leader on a consistently succesful team … Improved his decision making over his time as starting PG at Louisville … Very effective at running the pick and roll … Compact with a quick first step and some strong bounce … Plays with a lot of emotion, and when he’s going well can really lift the team from an emotional stand point … Played on teams that stressed defense, keeps stance very low to the ground and can get in passing lanes … Became a pass first PG after being known more as a scorer, willing to take on a role to help his team … Has leadership qualities, solid intangibles … A natural leader … Heart and soul of the Louisville championship team, has been through quite a bit and seems to carry a very positive, contagious attitude … Explosive leaper, as he showed converting an ally oop in the National Championship game.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal size for a PG … His shooting percentages over his last two college seasons were very low … Not a major threat from the outside, three point range in need of a lot of improvement … Became a better decision maker, yet still can use work in this area and needs to cut down turnovers … Despite being a very efficient foul shooter, failed to get to the line enough to make that much of a factor this season … Never really showed much improvement in his scoring ability, which was odd for someone with his speed and athleticism … Plagued by inconsistency through most of his college career … Gets posted up by bigger PG’s and can be pushed around … His emotional style can work against him as he can get too emotionally invested and get down on himself when things aren’t going well …

Notes: Has an incredible story, overcame a lot to eventually lead the 2013 Louisville Cardinals to a NCAA championship … Seen as a leader, role model and as having a strong work ethic … Lack of size is a definite concern, though his athleticism is NBA level … Decision making and speed could make him a second round pick, if not will have a chance in summer league and should be at some teams training camp … At the very least should be a positive locker room influence and a player who works very hard in practice with knowledge of how to run a team …
