NBA Comparison: Terrico White/Lance Stephenson

Strengths: Creative one-on-one combo guard with an attacking predisposition ... Greatest strength is penetrating off isolations, changing gears utilizing a devastating hesitation dribble- cradling the rock usually looking to score (12.9 PPG) ... Good speed when able to reach 6th gear and gather momentum ... Once he gets a step, gets to the rim quickly ... Uses his strong frame and length to separate from defenders and create opportunities in the paint ... Does not necessarily possess explosive quickness, but makes efficient use of movements ... He’s slithery in the paint ... Completes plays through contact with either hand. Shot 49% inside the three-point arc as a junior (31% 3PT) ... Hard-nosed competitor whose activity and effort on both backboards is a constant (5.4 RPG) ... Pushes the pace off defensive rebounds and excels in the open floor ... Despite considerable “make something out of nothing” playmaking attempts, he rarely gets careless ... Superior handles ... Lock down defensive potential ... Pressures the ball in a low defensive stance, moves very well laterally and his length is disruptive (1 SPG) ...

Weaknesses: Lack of confidence in his jumper seeps down and infects his greatest strengths ... Non-existence of the “in-between game” makes his repertoire a predictable one ... Raw shooting mechanics, frequently aborts the follow through ... Doesn't trust his stroke and easily rushed ... Scott will bull rush with his head down and attack the rim 9 out of 10 times, even if there’s absolutely nothing there ... Defenders play the drive exclusively, goading him to charge into a crowded painted area or step outside of his comfort zone by attempting a pull-up jumper ... For all his natural ability with the ball in his hands, he has a tendency to disappear offensively if not the focal point ... Awareness is highly questionable, unable to read the play beyond the initial line of defense and penetrates too deep ... Difficulty recognizing help side defense- in part due to tunnel vision, not having his head up to see the proceedings unfold ... Capable of the flashy pass (2.5 APG), however, doesn't make teammates around him better on a per game basis ... He’s been pinned a ball dominant two-guard rather than a legit lead guard prospect ... Could get to the free throw line with greater regularity (where he shoots 77% on 4 attempts per) if he eliminated the acrobatics ...

Notes: Scott was suspended six games in March 2012 for receiving impermissible benefits.
