NBA Comparison: Willie Warren / Jerryd Bayless

Strengths: Athletic combo guard with a scorer's mentality ... Has all the physical attributes that a team would look for in a lead guard ... Very athletic ... Gets off the ground very quickly ... Recorded a 42" maximum vertical leap, tied for highest at the 2011 NBA Draft Combine ... Stands a legit 6'3" in shoes and possesses a solid 6'5.25" wingspan... Strong, thick frame ... Great penetrator ... All he needs is one step on his defender to get in the paint ... Uses his strength, athleticism, creativity and impressive body control to finish well when he gets to the rim ... Able to absorb contact and finish after the foul ... Has a dynamic arsenal of offensive moves... Certainly not polished in this area, but has a developing step-back jumper that could be a deadly move eventually... Displays good confidence (maybe over-confidence) in his shooting ability ... Not hesitant to take advantage of any opportunity the defense gives him ... Has shown he has NBA range on his three-point jumper and shot a respectable 36.2% from behind the arc last season... Good lateral quickness and a tough attitude defensively ... Closes out on shooters well ... Has a great deal of potential, as he's only coming out as a freshman ... Could end up playing on or off the ball, depending on how the team that signs him chooses to develop him...

Weaknesses: Hasn't managed to prove that he can consistently score in any way ... Outside shooting is probably his best attribute, but he even he’s still very inconsistent there and he has a poor shot-selection ... Ball-handling ability is below average for someone whose ideal position is at the point ... Shot a very regrettable 38% from inside the arc ... Has poor passing ability, even for a combo guard ... Often even fails to notice open teammates ... Had an assist/turnover ratio of only 1.06 ... Will struggle defending shooting guards at the next level ... Dealt with suspensions and injuries during his only season at Kansas ... Failed to make a very positive impression during his time there ... Is a ways away from contributing in the NBA ... Will be a long-term project...

Outlook: In the NBA, Selby will need to learn how to control himself on the court ... Efficiency and consistency are two of the biggest glaring holes in his game, and they will likely keep him out of a rotation in the short-term ... Still, he has a great amount of potential and should be considered by a team looking for upside in the late first round ...

Tyler Ingle 6/7/11

Strengths: 6’3” combo guard out of Lake Clifton High Schoolin Baltimore who can handle the ball, pass, and score ... His shooting touch is solid, and he’s got great body control and hang time ... When finishing at the hoop, he does a good job of squaring his shoulder and getting a quality shot up ... He uses hop-steps well and understands angles for getting by his defender ... He can also dig in on defense, although he does gamble a bit too much ... Shows the toughness that Baltimore kids are known for ...

Weaknesses: For a potential PG, his game management isn’t the best ... In AAU play, he didn’t run the point, which shows that he isn’t always the best option as lead guard ... His skills seem a little bit more geared towards playing off-guard, which is troubling considering his size, although he does seem to have the speed, athleticism and lateral quickness to guard the point ... He’ll definitely need to improve his overall game in order to be a first round pick ... Does he have attitude issues, or is he highly competitive? Time will tell.
