Overview: A veteran swingman who is extremely efficient on the offensive end. Good size for his position, but not very strong. Used to be an incredibly explosive athlete. Still has some speed and leaping ability left, but they are not as prolific as they once were. Functions mostly as a fantastic shooter, one of the leagues best actually in efficiency categories. Can score and facilitate the players around him as well. Will give some effort on defense, but that will never be what keeps him on the floor. Wasnt an overnight success at Oregon State, but developed into a very versatile player by his senior year. Could run the point early in his career, but has evolved into a shooting specialist. Fits what the Spurs are looking for in a role player perfectly. Won NBA Championships with the Spurs in 2005 and 2007. Father Rick and brothers Drew and Jon played in the NBA.
Offense: A highly effective offensive player who fits his role perfectly. Gets a ridiculous 70% of his shots as a spot up three point shooter, but hits them a great clip. Probably the most efficient catch and shoot player in the game today, and has been for years. Displays a very quick shooting stroke with high arc that has ridiculous touch despite its lack of follow through. Makes a killing as a set shooter. Will take some jumpers off the dribble, but is only decent. Doesnt put the ball on the floor to attack the basket very often. Wont get to the rim often in general. Almost never gets to the free throw line, but is one of the leagues best once there. Will finish fast breaks periodically, or work off the ball for an easy basket, but doesnt look to score in that way. Handles the ball extremely well. Seldom turns the ball over. Great assist to turnover ratio. Moves the ball extremely well on the perimeter. Super high basketball IQ. An ideal fit in San Antonio.
Defense: An average defender who appears to be better due to the players around him. Struggles on the pick and roll. Displays poor lateral quickness, and will get beaten off the dribble when isod. Plays crafty defense, though, reads the scouting report, and wont fall for fakes. Knows where his help is. Will come up with some steals in passing lanes. Not a dynamic defender, but plays within San Antonios concept.
