NBA Scouting Reports, Southeastern Division (Part 1)
May 6, 2008

Overview: Super athletic guard who hasnít developed the basketball IQ or skill-set necessary to capitalize on his potential. Has bounced around the league a fair amount since being drafted by Boston in 2003. Had a breakout season in Minnesota and landed a contract he will likely never live up to from Phoenix. Was not a fit there at all, largely due to his shortcomings as a perimeter shooter. Traded to Miami, but hasnít had a chance to show what he can do quite yet.

Offense: Incredibly quick, with a thick, stocky build. Thrives in transition and puts tremendous pressure on the defense. A very good ball-handler. Can create his own shot and blow by his man, but doesnít do a great job reading defenses and making plays for others. Decision making is questionable, prone to mental lapses. Runs into brick walls, and struggles to find a rhythm between being too aggressive or too passive. Pounds the ball excessively at times. Can find the open man, but is not what you would call a floor general. Outside shot is extremely streaky, which makes defenses sag off him and hurts the teamís offensive flow. Has great elevation on his jumper, though, and seems to have made some strides in that area. Must not fall in love with it, as he tends to do at times. Has talent, and can put points on the board, but needs to mature and find the right situation.

DraftExpress: Even Morey talking specific players (Marcus Banks, Stromile). Very surprising. And refreshing. Should loosen up rest of panelists. #ssac
