NBA Comparison: Torrey Craig

Strengths: Athletic and agile wing who is an outstanding rebounder and versatile defender on the wing … Drastic improvement throughout his college career as a 3-point shooter. Started at 17% on less than an attempt per game and evolved into a 36% shooter by the end of his career on over two attempts per game … Agile slasher who draws contact and finishes around the hoop with tremendous efficiency and touch (60.6% on 2-point attempts) … Averaged 8.6 rebounds per game this season, including over two rebounds on the offensive glass … Exceptional size on the wing, combined with plus athleticism should allow him to guard 1-4 at the next level as a defensive specialist. One of the most underrated defenders in the 2023 NBA Draft class … Keeps his head up when he slashes from the wing with quick twitches and solid footwork around the basket … Scores out of face ups and post ups with this footwork and shifty changes of speed … Can be an outstanding help side rim protector as he nearly averaged a block per game in his final three collegiate seasons … Above average playmaker for his size … Hard worker who can contribute as a spark plug off the bench with versatility on both ends of the floor … Filled out frame at 6’7, 220 pounds, allowing him to hold his own in the post … Projects as a rotational wing who brings energy and experience to the Phoenix Suns who need guys to fill out their rotation with the high percentage of the salary cap they are giving to four players … Can score with either hand in the post …

Weaknesses: Emerged as a decent shooter from beyond the arc, but a lot of these looks were surrendered by opponents because of his inconsistency as a shooter. Might not pose enough of a threat from the perimeter to keep defenders honest and bring out the true strengths of his game … Took advantage of the athletic gap he had against the weaker competition in the A-10, which will come to a swift end in his first minutes in the NBA … Didn’t test as well athletically as many expected. Seems to play as much more of a leaper than his vertical tests indicated at the combine … Inefficient free-throw shooter at 63% for his career … Already 23 years old … Not an extremely high upside player. Projects as more of a sparingly played role player who needs to earn more minutes

Notes: Measured 6’7” barefoot, 8’11” standing reach, 220.4 lbs and a 7’0.5” wingspan and a 28.5 inch standing vertical and a 33-inch max vertical at the 2023 NBA Combine … Transferred from Georgia to Dayton, spending two years at each school … 2023 All-Atlantic 10 First Team and All-Defense … Born in Brussels, Belgium … Drafted 52nd overall to the Phoenix Suns in the 2023 NBA Draft …
