NBA Scouting Reports, Southwestern Division (Part Two)
May 27, 2008

Overview: A role player who will knock down outside shots when open and make some plays with his athleticism. Possesses very good size and terrific length. Isnít very physically strong. Displays good overall athleticism, but isnít tremendously quick or explosive. Something of a shooting specialist, but isnít as consistent enough for that to be his calling card. A little bit too one-dimensional considering that he consistently shoots around 40% from the field, and does not get to the free throw line. Was a prolific scorer during all four of the seasons he spent at LaSalle. Played a simply ridiculous number of minutes in those four years. Brings a nice scoring presence off the bench, but will have a hard time finding the success he saw when got extended minutes with the Hornets in the 2006-2007 season, and looks fairly overpaid considering his production.

Offense: A semi-useful offensive role player who gets almost two-third of his shots from spot up opportunities. Displays a smooth jumper that is absolutely gorgeous when heís in rhythm, but hasnít been falling the way it did earlier in his career. Isnít great when he has to shoot on the move. Will release the ball on the way down, leading to misses. Takes more shots from beyond the arc than inside of it. Can put the ball on the floor if he has to, but isnít an aggressive or creative ball handler. Knows heís not quick enough to beat his man off the dribble with his poor ball-handling skills. Will use pump fakes to get recovering defenders off the ground and then step in for a mid range jumper. Not great off the dribble. Can be a zone buster, but doesnít have a lot of successes when there arenít a few other threats on the floor. Runs the floor well and does a good job getting to the open spot on the perimeter. Good foul shooter, but doesnít head to the line at a pitiful rate since he lacks the ball-handling skills, strength and toughness. Will get some easy shots around the basket in transition and by being active without the ball. Not a threat on the offensive glass or from the post. Almost never turns the ball over, since heís primarily a spot-up shooter.

Defense: A solid defender who uses his size and phenomenal length to make it tough on his match up. Does a good job getting low and contesting shots one-on-one. Puts a good effort in, and understands the nuances. Isnít much of a factor as a help side defender or shot-blocker. Plays solid defense and isnít a risk taker. Makes an effort to stay in front of his man, but doesnít always have a favorable matchup. Stiff hips make it tough at times not to get beat. Heís smart, though, and knows how to recover. Rebounds at a decent rate. Will commit some blocking fouls when he canít get deny penetration. Not the best defender, but far from the worst.
