Overview: Role-playing small forward who has proven to be a decent asset off the bench. Has average size for his position, but doesnt carry much weight on his frame. Not a great athlete either. Has very long arms. Displays a nice all-around game, which is key since he doesnt excel offensively. Rebounds the ball fairly well for his position. Plays great defense, and isnt a risk taker, something that makes him a valuable asset. Not a scorer and definitely not a long-range shooter, but has improved his range somewhat in recent seasons. Wont contribute much from the perimeter in most scenarios. Won the WAC Player of the Year Award in 2003 as a senior at Southern Methodist University. Cant put up the same numbers in the NBA that he did in college, but quickly found a niche as a complimentary player and a defensive specialist. May be inclined to stick with the Clippers as a free agent this summer should they show interest. Efficiency really abandoned him last season.
Offense: Gets most of his touches in spot up situations, but is much more effective at the rim than on the perimeter. Not a good shooter by any stretch. Doesnt have bad mechanics, but simply isnt effective. Will shoot a three if hes open. Doesnt do a whole lot of damage off the dribble either. A mediocre ball-handler. Loves to go left. Capable finisher at the rim. Will crash the glass and move without the ball to get open looks at the basket. Does a good job moving the ball on the perimeter. Wont do a whole lot outside of his repertoire which in his case is one of his strong points. Almost never turns the ball over. Doesnt shoot a great percentage from the field.
Defense: A tremendous defender who plays aggressively on the ball without fouling. Gets in a deep stance and moves his feet extremely well. Wont use his hands unless he has to. Wont go after bad passes or reach. Isnt going to try and block many shots either. Will contest anything he can though. Plays with great discipline. The type of player that can make an impact with consistent defense.
