NBA Comparison: Jameer Nelson

Strengths: Mason-Griffin, a McDonalds All-American, had a productive freshman season for Oklahoma … He has a scorers mentality (14 points per game) and proved to be deadly from behind the arc hitting 70 threes at an high rate of 42.4%. Although he likes to score he also dished out 5 assists per game, an impressive total for freshman … He has shown good quickness and is also a solid ball handler who did a nice job finding open teammates in his first college season … Much more athletic and explosive than he appears. Can reportedly windmill dunk the ball … 

Weaknesses: Although he put up impressive numbers as a college freshman, Mason-Griffin may have a tougher time in the pros … The guard stands at 5’11 and is listed at 203 lbs … He is considered to be carrying too much weight and has been described a pudgy, it also doesn’t help that he has a small wingspan and many believe that he will struggle defensively in the NBA … He is also very inconsistent although that is common among freshman … Despite hitting over 42% of his 3 point attempts he somehow managed to only hit 37.7% of his two point shots, a number that reflects a poor shot selection … Made a huge mistake leaving after just one season. Appeared headed for an NBA career, but with just one year of college experience, that will be a much greater challenge at his size …

Notes: After the season ended Mason-Griffin announced his intention to leave school and enter the NBA draft despite many sources believing he would go undrafted.
