NBA Scouting Reports, Pacific Division (Part One)
July 31, 2008

Overview: An above average athlete with good offensive skills who is an ideal fit for Don Nelsonís offensive system. Has good size, strength, and skills by NBA standards. Runs the floor well, and really knows how to space the floor and get open in transition. A terrific offensive player whose consistency isnít nearly as questionable as it once was. Still has lapses in judgment on the floor, and doesnít always play winning basketball. Took the long route to the NBA. Spent time in the CBA, Venezuela, and the Dominican Republic after failing to make it to the University of Arizona out of Oak Hill Academy. Hasnít been a model citizen by any stretch of the imagination, but has become a leader for Golden State.

Offense: Golden Stateís most formidable swingman. Has emerged recently due to the way he fits into Don Nelsonís offense. Not a very efficient offensive player, but he sure can put points on the board. Gets almost one fourth of his offense from one-on-one isolations with another third coming from spot up and transition situations. Solid set shooter, but is more streaky than consistent. Doesnít have a very quick release. Very aggressive. Can handle the ball, but has a tendency to get sloppy at times. Uses all kinds of hesitation moves. Extremely instinctive getting to the rack and scoring, although not particularly explosive elevating around the rim. Will push the break himself periodically. Likes to drive right, but finishes well when going to the rim with either hand. Tries to bully his way inside. Not afraid of contact. Goes to the line at a high rate and shoots a very good percentage. Runs the floor well. Knows when to break out of his lane to receive passes for easy baskets on fast breaks. Thrives as a passer now, something that wasnít true about him earlier in his career. Keeps his head up and looks for his teammates. Tries to force some passes into traffic leading to turnovers. Shot-selection can be very poor at times. Doesnít always know his limitations. Gets caught up in his own offense and has a tendency to force the issue. Shoots around 40% from the field, which makes it very difficult for his team to win games when heís carrying such a heavy load.

Defense: An inconsistent defensive player whoís effectively largely depends on the effort he brings on any given night. Has good size and length and can brings great competitiveness when heís focused, making him outstanding defending on the ball. Not quite as aggressive defending off the ball, though, doesnít fight through screens and doesnít really take responsibilities on this end. An exceptionally poor rebounder at his position, which is surprising considering his physical tools and how bad his teammates are in this area.
