Miguel Gonzalez, 6'7, Small Forward, Valladolid, 1999
-Good size for the wing and solid length
-Finishes creatively around the basket using either hand and very soft touch
-Solid outside shooter. Dips the ball on the catch, but has a consistent release point. Shot 40% for 3 this season in LEB Silver (Spanish 3rd division)
-Team player who likes to move the ball. Pushes ahead in transition. Makes post entry passes. Hits the roll man for layups. Doesn't let the ball stick in the half-court. Contributes to his team's ball-movement willingly with some very heady passes
-Shows glimpses of crafty footwork and creativity as a ball-handler going one on one, playing pick and roll or attacking closeouts. Fluid enough to operate at different speeds, even if his skill-level doesn't quite allow it yet. Should be able to develop this part of his game in time
-Really nice anticipation skills jumping in passing lanes and grabbing rebounds off the defensive glass. Uses his size and length to his advantage
-Active and competitive on defense. Moves his feet. Gets over screens.
-Intelligent and mature player. Ticks a lot of boxes as a role-player
-Has a narrow frame. Not overwhelmingly athletic
-First step is average. Not the craftiest advanced ball-handler to make up for it. Isn't always strong with the ball. Lacks the strength to get into the paint at times. Relies heavily on floaters when he can't get all the way to the rim. Has a difficult time dealing with contact
-Not someone who is going to create a great deal of offense in the half-court. Needs creators around him. Had to do a little more than he was probably comfortable on this Spanish team
-Much better in catch and shoot situations than he is off the dribble. Needs to improve the fluidity of his pull-up stroke. Doesn't create great separation from defenders
-Big ball dip and low release point overall. Shoots a push shot. Needs to quicken his release
-Not incredibly physical. Due to his frame? Or does he lack toughness?
Outlook Goes by Miki Gonzales.' Smart and versatile Spanish wing player with good size and skill. Already has some experience at the pro level in the 3rd division.
