NBA Comparison: Speedy Claxton (less PG skills)

Strengths:
Might be the fastest player in college and certainly one of the best scorers … He has a nice first step and tremendous ability to turn the corner … Mixes his quickness well with a variety of hesitation and change of direction moves, making him very difficult to defend … Has the ultimate green light to go along with supreme confidence, equalling to a very dangerous scoring weapon … Using a variety of crossover and in & out moves, he is able to get into the lane, where he can finish with a mix of floaters and teardrops … For all his moves off the dribble, his best weapon is his jump shot … He is able to get it off absolutely anywhere and against virtually anyone; off a curl, ball screen, pullup going both ways and well beyond NBA range … His release is incredibly quick and he has the rare ability to shoot on the move and while he is off balance ... In his senior season, he is showing that he is not afraid of contact, getting to the line over 6 times per game, and converting at an impressive 90.5% …

Weaknesses:
Even though he is a lethal scorer, at 5-11 he is tremendously undersized not only as a shooting guard but even as a playmaker … Has not made the transition to the lead guard, which would have helped his stock … He has improved his assist numbers this season, but is still far away from being a point guard … Is so consumed with getting his own shot, that he continuously looks his teammates off, even on easy drive and kick opportunities … His scoring average is up to an impressive 25.8 per, but his shooting is down to a dismal 39% … He becomes predictable by overdribbling and letting the defense sit on his moves … Gets into trouble by trying to do too much, he does not read help defense well, which forces him to dribble into traffic on a regular basis … Defensively he is able to stay in front of people because of his quickness, but has a hard time contesting shots … Bigger opponents are frequently looking to take advantage by posting him up … He does not use his quickness to get into the passing lanes …
