NBA Comparison: AJ Price

Strengths: Experienced college player who was a four year contributor, three year starter and leader on a consistently succesful team ... Improved his decision making over his time as starting PG at Louisville ... Very effective at running the pick and roll ... Compact with a quick first step and some strong bounce ... Plays with a lot of emotion, and when he's going well can really lift the team from an emotional stand point ... Played on teams that stressed defense, keeps stance very low to the ground and can get in passing lanes ... Became a pass first PG after being known more as a scorer, willing to take on a role to help his team ... Has leadership qualities, solid intangibles ... A natural leader ... Heart and soul of the Louisville championship team, has been through quite a bit and seems to carry a very positive, contagious attitude ... Explosive leaper, as he showed converting an ally oop in the National Championship game.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal size for a PG ... His shooting percentages over his last two college seasons were very low ... Not a major threat from the outside, three point range in need of a lot of improvement ... Became a better decision maker, yet still can use work in this area and needs to cut down turnovers ... Despite being a very efficient foul shooter, failed to get to the line enough to make that much of a factor this season ... Never really showed much improvement in his scoring ability, which was odd for someone with his speed and athleticism ... Plagued by inconsistency through most of his college career ... Gets posted up by bigger PG's and can be pushed around ... His emotional style can work against him as he can get too emotionally invested and get down on himself when things aren't going well ...

Notes: Has an incredible story, overcame a lot to eventually lead the 2013 Louisville Cardinals to a NCAA championship ... Seen as a leader, role model and as having a strong work ethic ... Lack of size is a definite concern, though his athleticism is NBA level ... Decision making and speed could make him a second round pick, if not will have a chance in summer league and should be at some teams training camp ... At the very least should be a positive locker room influence and a player who works very hard in practice with knowledge of how to run a team ...
