NBA Comparison: Blake Stepp

Strengths: Big point guard with deep-range on jumper and high-level understanding of pick-and roll basketball ... One of college game's most impactful performers since 2009. Led Saint Mary's to 108-28 overall record and three NCAA Tournament appearances in four years as starting point guard ... Quick, compact, consistent release on jumper whether stationary or on the move ... Efficient scorer due to proclivity for three-pointers and free throws... Career 38% shooter from beyond the arc on 5.6 attempts per game ... Elite foul shooter – shot 86% from free throw line for career on high volume of attempts ... Rare knack for pace and understanding of angles as a ball handler ... Elite floor vision, capable of making every pass in the book ... Very strong ... Thrives in pick-and-roll situations as playmaker for self or teammates, utilizing creativity and patience.

Weaknesses: Major concerns due to lack of lateral mobility, explosion and potential ... A graduated senior that turns 23 years-old in September ... High dribble allows smaller guards to rim him ... Tall, but lacks length in arms to make up for slow feet on either end ... Question of "blow-by" ability at next level ... Has trouble finishing in traffic over bigger defenders ... Competitive defensively, but lacks tools to make a positive impact on that end ... Oft easily beaten off dribble at the college level, and struggles navigating through on/off-ball screens ... Might be a finished product and failed to progress in senior season ...

Notes: Declined to play in 2013 Portsmouth Invitational ... Participated in 2012 Olympics as member of Australian national team.
