NBA D-League Showcase, Day One
January 15, 2008
The engine that made the Utah Flash go, Kevin Kruger did a great job setting the tone for his team with his poise and unselfishness, something that rubs off on all his teammates and really makes them look like a cohesive unit—which is somewhat of a rarity here in the D-League at times.

Kruger stands out especially well for his basketball IQ and court vision, making creative passes and really doing a nice job controlling the tempo for the Flash. He runs their half-court offense, moves the ball around the perimeter fluidly, and gets the ball into the post nicely when the situation calls for it. He’s not the quickest or more explosive player you’ll find here, and that is somewhat reflected in his zero free throw attempts. He struggles at times when his half-court offense breaks down and he’s forced to go out and make plays on his own with the shot-clock running down, but he regardless did a nice job here finding creative solutions and ensuring that his offense ran fluidly. It will be interesting to see how he looks against a better defense.

Defensively, Kruger doesn’t have great lateral quickness, but he’s smart and puts a good effort in, which brought some pretty solid results on this end of the floor. He got in the passing lanes nicely as a result of his effort here.

In terms of scoring, Kruger seemed more concerned with running his offense and getting everyone around him involved first and foremost, possibly passing up on some situations where he could have been aggressive and put the ball in the basket himself. His 3-point shot wasn’t falling for him at a great rate here, but he clearly has nice looking (albeit flat-footed) mechanics, and this is probably a better weapon that he was able to show today.

All in all, Kruger looks like one of the better point guards the D-League has to offer, but it’s hard to say that his NBA potential is very high. He should be able to make a solid career overseas in mid to high level Europe.

2007-08 D-League Draft/Season Preview
November 1, 2007
Kevin Kruger is the type of point guard that a D-League team will value early in the draft. In his first professional experience as a rookie out of UNLV, he played extremely well in summer league with the Orlando Magic and made it through the first half of training camp before being cut. The son of coach Lon Kruger, Kevin runs a team with great maturity and also has NBA three point range on his jumper. The rookie guard also has a respectable mid-range game which will allow him to both score and distribute effectively in the D-League. Kruger may lack the upside that some of the other prospects have, but point guards are a hot commodity in the NBDL, and every coach would love to have an intelligent floor general running the team.
