Overview: A solid role-player who doesn’t excel in any one aspect of the game. Doesn’t have great athleticism, size, or skill, but is average in each. Works extremely hard on the floor, which allows his to stand out on occasion. Good work ethic made him a very good player at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Made an impact in the NBADL in 2003 winning both Rookie of the Year and MVP. Has had a hard time finding a long-term home in the NBA. May well be looking for another home when he becomes a free agent this offseason.
Offense: Gets forty percent of his offense from spot ups and another twenty percent in transition. Has a solid stroke. Is somewhat effective as a catch and shoot player. Can hit shots off the dribble when he doesn’t have to elevate. Likes to get to the basket when driving right, but likes to pull up when driving left. Takes some ill-advised shots on occasion. Doesn’t shoot a good percentage from the stripe or the field. Isn’t explosive at the rim, but does a nice job of shielding the ball with his body. Needs to not force as many drives as he does. Often winds up driving to the side of the glass instead of right at the rim when he can’t get a step. Has the size to make an impact in the post, and does a decent job crashing the offensive glass. Could definitely stand to improve from the free throw line. Is a decent ball handler, and takes good care of the ball. Can push the break himself even though it doesn’t always look good doing it. Gets really aggressive when he sees an opening. Good at moving the ball on the perimeter.
Defense: Athleticism, or lack thereof, makes him a liability against better players. Gets in a good stance, but is susceptible to dribble drives and pull ups. Doesn’t have the quickness to keep up with most wing player’s first step. Is capable of defending similarly sized players. Struggles when matched up against smaller guards or bigger forwards. Could definitely stand to use his hands better and be more aggressive.
