Eray Akyuz, 6'2, Point Guard, Banvit, 2000, Turkey

-Good size for a point guard
-Basically the leader of the Turkish team that surprisingly made it all the way to the tournament Finals, despite being one of the youngest players in attendance at the tournament, at just 15 years old
-Very creative player
-Strong ball-handler
-Solid quickness off the bounce
-Operates at different speeds
-Plays with great confidence. Not afraid of the big moments
-Can make shots off the dribble in the mid-range area
-Has a nice feel for the game
-Strong anticipation skills allow him to get in the passing lanes

-Narrow frame
-Limited offensive player overall. Not a prolific or efficient scorer
-Lacks the strength or explosiveness needed to finish effectively around the basket. Can't always finish what he creates. Rarely gets to the free throw line
-3-point shooting percentages have been low in every setting he's played in. 19% in 31 games
-Decision making is questionable at times. Extremely high turnover rate (5 per-40). Picks up his dribble unnecessarily
-Can't really guard anyone at the moment. Puts in a minimal effort. Barely bends his knees. Gets torched off the dribble relentlessly. Will he be able to defend his position down the road?

Outlook Young Turkish guard who shows nice creativity as a lead guard. Plays with confidence that belies his age. Has a lot of work to do on his body and offensive polish.
