NBA Comparison: Maurice Evans

Aran Smith – 2/13/2008

Strengths: An intriguing prospect with developing skills … A ridiculous run/jump athlete who thrives in the open floor, up tempo game … High riser who regularly converts on highlight dunks … Shows nice touch on his shot … Slashes to the basket well with long arms and good body control … Playing alongside a good point guard really enhances his strengths as he is very good at running back door and converting ally oops … A solid free throw shooter (80%) … Has really improved as a three point shooter … Shows a great deal of potential as his skills are steadily catching up to his athleticism … Quick hands and feet make him a quality on ball defender … Solid defender who gathers a good deal of steals with his long arms and anticipation … Explosive leaper who jumps better off two feet …

Weaknesses: Though he’s already 21, still has a low skill level. His court sense and overall feel for the game have room for improvement … Lacks great ball handling and passing ability … Not great at creating offense for himself off the dribble … Must improve as a ball handler to gain better scoring ability … Turns the ball over too often … Jump shot is improving but still a weakness … Sometimes settles too much for the outside shot instead of driving to the basket and using his athleticism to finish at the rim … Should go to the line more often than he does, looking to draw contact … A better spot up shooter than off the dribble, but showing some improvement … Has a muscular frame but an added 5-10 pounds of muscle would help him …

Notes: Came into Arkansas as one of the top juco transfers in the country …
