NBA Compasrison: Anderson Hunt

Strengths: Can score in a variety of ways from anywhere on the court…skilled at attacking the rim and either scoring or drawing fouls … Is capable of scoring in bunches…point guard skills have continued to improve throughout 4 years of college … Quick first step that can cause trouble for defenders … Highly explosive leaper who despite his size can elevate over bigger defenders…willing to take the big shot … Solid ball handler … Thief on defense, averaging 2 steals per game his senior year at UTEP … Exceptional athleticism … Efficient scorer … Excellent body control in the air, allowing him to make adjustments and finish while in mid-air … Lateral quickness is stellar, allowing him to stay in front of the quickest of opponents …

Weaknesses: Listed at 6-0, which may be generous … He is a shooting guard trapped in a point guard’s body … Can get in trouble trying to make the spectacular play too often … Volume shooter … While his passing has improved, still struggles to impact the game as a passer … Relies too heavily on his athleticism … Will struggle to get his shot off against taller guards … Has no conscience when it comes to shot selection, is just as capable of shooting his team into a game as he is shooting them out of it … Tends to settle for outside jumpers instead of creating off the dribble.

Outlook: Has the quickness and scoring ability to be a quality player in Europe …
