NBA Comparison: Caron Butler/Jarvis Hayes

Strengths: Warren is a big time scorer and a guy with fantastic instincts for the game … He works very hard on both ends of the floor and has a knack for finding openings in the defense to put the ball in the hoop, in other words, he’s very opportunistic … This ties in with his offensive rebounding as well, he always seems to be in the right position … He’s excellent in transition and runs the floor extremely well … Works well both on and off the ball … He can spot up and knock down jumpers from deep, he can set up his man and beat them via backdoor cuts or he can create for himself … He has range from all over the floor, although he’s best from midrange, and is surprisingly comfortable handling the ball … Lost some weight and looks more athletic this year … Will overpower lesser athletes around the basket playing bully ball … He is becoming more of a wing from a skill standpoint … Defensively he puts forth a great effort, and rebounds very well.

Weaknesses: The obvious weakness is that he doesn’t have a defined position … He lacks athleticism at the wing, and he’s small for a post player with short arms … Regardless of where he plays he’s going to be at an athletic disadvantage due to poor lateral quickness and being a less athletic player … After shooting excellent from deep as a freshman, he has struggled from 3 this season, though his numbers have picked up as the season has progressed …

Overall: Warren has responded very well to his expanded role for the Wolfpack this year … He worked very hard to get better and you can tell with his improved offensive game and athleticism. If the trend continues he could be a valuable player down the line … Where he stands now he should probably go in the mid to late 1st where he would be a valuable scorer off the bench with starting potential down the road …

Notes: Measured 6’8.5 (in shoes) 231 lbs, with a 6’9.5 wingspan at the 2013 Kevin Durant Skills Academy… Was 3rd in the Nation in scoring as a sophomore (24 ppg) shooting over 50% from the field …
