Understanding the urgency involved with being a junior who already gave up his remaining college eligibility after signing with an agent, Pinnock did a very nice job catching the eyes of scouts with the combination of potential and current production he dropped consistently throughout the camp.
Pinnock started off a bit slow and seemed to blend in with the crowd, but by the 2nd and 3rd games he began to establish himself as one of the top players here. Coming into Orlando, we already knew that Pinnock was a phenomenal athlete who is blessed with an NBA-ready body. Much of the poor decision making skills and wild inconsistency seemed to have been left at the DC area before he decided to show up here, though. Pinnock used his first step and excellent strength to get into the lane time after time and finish strong in traffic at the hoop, and even showed an in-between game by pulling up off the dribble and knocking down shots. When given the opportunity, he did not look terrible shooting the ball from college 3-point range either, although this will probably be the #1 thing hell have to show to make and stick in the NBA. Measuring out an inch short at 6-4 did not help matters much, but Pinnock has shown that there is more to his game than we initially thought, with even better things to come from him in the future. He helped his cause tremendously.
