The adidas Eurocamp MVP and the most complete playmaker at the camp, Huertel has nice quickness, nifty skill off the dribble and most importantly is a terrific passer. He gets into the paint consistently (in transition and in the halfcourt) and is able to draw help and make the correct reads. He keeps his head up surveying the floor, he sees plays ahead of time and can deliver passes with good precision. He is a streaky scorer, going in and out of rhythm throughout the game, but can be a difficult guy to defend when he has it going because he plays with a lot of confidence and is not afraid to take shots. Physically he is not a great prospect, showing a slim frame with limited vertical explosiveness. He may be too overmatched to be a serious candidate for the NBA, but definitely shows all signs of being a terrific European player.
