NBA Comparison: Jason Williams/Luke Ridnour

Strengths: Big lead guard with a flashy skill set and excellent scoring ability ... Crafty and experienced ... A wizard with the ball in his hands showing a yoyo handle, and great change of speed and hesitation moves ... Imaginative playmaker ... Game shows a lot of style as he sort of glides around the court with the ball in his hands ... Makes everything look easy ...Very adept at running the pick and roll, showing terrific ability to make quick decisions with the ball in his hands ... 5.8/2.3 a/to numbers display high level ball protection and decision making ... Despite lacking a lightning first step is very shifty and shows a strong ability to break down defenders with a tremendous handle ... Possesses a deadly crossover ... A better scorer than shooter .. Shooting showed significant improvement in senior year. 49% FG, 38% 3P, and 81% Ft ... Hit just under two 3 pointers per game showing a strong ability to pull up off the dribble ... Displays a lot of midrange ability, utilizing tear drops and runners to perfection ... Deceptive quickness. 6'5 size helps to overcome speed and athleticism issues ... Shows the ability to get his hips by opponents and then use leverage to keep an angle to the basket ...

Weaknesses: Athleticism is below average by NBA standards ... Not a great leaper ... May struggle some defensively. Foot speed, particularly laterally, is a concern ... Separation ability is a question mark as well ... Not a strong player and could get pushed around some. Needs to get stronger to be able to finish without being knocked off balance easily ... Outside jumper still must add consistency. Shot appears a little flat and while he hits the 3 ball at a high volume, should work on gaining a higher release point ... Ball dominant guard so will need to prove that he's truly talented enough to run the show to bring his full value to a team ... Playing in the Summit League, it's harder for scouts to gauge of his abilities as his level of competition wasn't top notch night in and night out ... Will he be able to get shots and utilize his great handle to get by elite level athletes in the NBA?

Notes: Has drawn comparisons to "Pistol" Pete Maravich from NBA scouts due to his dazzling ball skills ... A prolific scorer ... Put up 53 points in a game. The most in 4 seasons ... Led the Jackrabbits to a huge win over Washington as a junior. A team consisting of two first rounders (Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten) in their backcourt ... There is a wide range of opinions among scouts on him. Some love his potential, while others question his ability to make it in the league ...
