NBA Scouting Reports, Southwestern Division (Part Two)
May 27, 2008
Overview: A veteran swingman who may not be as explosive as he once was, but is still an effective player. Has very good size for the shooting guard position. Not the physical specimen he once was, but still very solid by NBA standards. Used to be one of the most explosive leapers in the game. Still moves pretty well, and is capable of taking his man off the dribble. Relegated to a complementary role at this point, almost entirely as a spot-up shooter. Capable defensively as well. Was a dominant player at Wisconsin for all three seasons he stayed there after his freshman year. Learned to play in an up-tempo style as a Badger. Had a great rookie season with the Suns, but became a star with the Mavericks under Don Nelson. Two time All-Star. Won the NBA Championship with the Spurs in 2007. Will be looking to either stay with the Spurs or sign on with another competitor as a free agent this offseason.

Offense: A once dynamic offensive player who is now a fairly one-dimensional offensive role player. Gets well more than 65% of his touches as a spot up shooter. Does very little damage at the rim anymore, and almost never gets to the free throw line. Used to be known more for his forays to the rim. Displays a very consistent shooting stroke, and connects from three point range at a high rate. Takes a ton of threes. Will do quite a bit of scoring from the midrange as well. Likes to drive left. Will knock down pull up jumpers at a decent rate. Seldom takes a dribble to attack the rim. Good ball handler and passer. Turns the ball over at an absurdly low rate for his position and minutes. An effective player who is one of San Antonioís more aggressive offensive role players. More productive, but less efficient than some of his counterparts.

Defense: A solid perimeter defender despite his age. Still has the lateral quickness to keep most shooting guards out of the lane. Plays significantly different now than he did a few years ago. Doesnít take almost any risks. Plays hard and lets his man make mistakes. Displays a very good stance. Shows very good defensive foot work. Always goes after long rebounds. Isnít a difference maker, but has become a prototypical sound Spurs defender.
