Overview: A big, strong point guard that doesnít have much speed or explosiveness. Is taller than most NBA point guards. His strong frame is his most imposing feature. Lacks the athleticism to be counted on very heavily these days. Has turned consistency and solid decision-making into a decade long career, during which he has played for eight different teams. Sports an impressive assist to turnover ratio year in and year out, and has improved his perimeter shooting to the point that he canít be left open. Spent some time in the NBDL early in his career. Now playing for his ninth team after signing with the Orlando Magic this summer.
Offense: Not much of a scorer at this point, but will take what the defense gives him. Shoots the ball with unusual mechanics, flat-footed with a slow release. Has solid enough form, but needs time and space to get it off. Shoots a decent percentage nonetheless. Wonít rush a shot just because he has a small window. Is only average from the mid-range and the outside. Can create some offense off the pick and roll, but isnít a great finisher. Struggles to get to the basket due to his non-existent athleticism, and will rarely if ever get to the free throw line. Only an adequate free throw shooter. Displays solid decision-making when running the point. Rarely turns the ball over and shows very nice poise. Lacks the foot speed to draw defenders and create openings for teammates.
Defense: Limited by his physical tools on the defensive end. Lacks foot-speed to defend quicker point guards, but his size allows him to contest and be physical. Doesnít come up with many steals or blocks despite his physical stature. Pretty good rebounder for his position. Lacks anticipation and explosiveness. Gets beat off the dribble too easily. Has the size to deny penetration when he sees it coming.
