NBA Comparison: Walt Williams

Aran Smith – 1/1/2006

Strengths: Has tremendous versatility, at 6-8 Shawne can play from the 1-thru-4 positions … Extremely long with a 7-3 wingspan … Advanced offensive game, really understands how to play … Great one on one skills offensively … Great vision, passing skills … Good ball handler, almost second nature … Can create for himself or others off the dribble drive … Consistent jump shot, with range out to three point … A highlight reel waiting to happen … Extremely long wingspan makes him a terrific rebounder and shot blocker … Good competitor, doesn’t back down from a challenge, as he showed squaring off with Adam Morrison after being pushed … His body is not far from being NBA ready …

Weaknesses: Low-release point on his jumper could cause problems at the next level … Will need to develop better defensive technique, more intensity … Quickness is very good, but won’t stand out on the next level … Still must add strength and conditioning …

Notes: Played a fifth year at Laurenburg Prep which gave him great experience and developed his skill level heading into college …
