NBA Comparison: Antoine Wright

Aran Smith - 1/16/2008

Strengths: Versatile wing with good combination of length and athleticism ... The Panama native has a good feel for the game and shows strong leadership skills ... His ball handling ability is especially impressive for a wing ... Never over-penetrates, makes good decisions and leads the break well ... Solid athlete with good defensive ability. His positive A/TO ratio is testament to his high basketball IQ ... Athleticism is decent, although not out of this world ... Adept scorer who uses his ball handling ability well to get to the basket. Midrange game is polished ... Has great size to play the SG position at the next level ... A smart, mature, experienced player who should be ready to contribute right away at the next level ... Works hard on his game and has shown marked improvement in his free throw and outside shooting ...

Weaknesses: Very solid in all areas, but doesn't stand out in any one area ... A better scorer than shooter, he could stand to increase his range and consistency ... As a fifth year senior, his untapped potential isn't as great as many other prospects that will be available. He'll be 23 and a half by draft day ... Had a reputation for being inconsistent going into his senior year, but has played at a high level up to midway through January ... His length helps him, but his effort and lateral foot speed are below NBA level. Defense is the area of his game that will require the most work for him to get playing time and succeed at the next level ... Detractors will discredit his excellent senior stats for being in the Atlantic 10 and question why he couldn't "cut it" in the ACC ...

Having a breakout season as a senior and should have a good chance at being Atlantic 10 Player of the Year.
