|Jimmer is not just a three point shooter.|
Fredette is a complete offensive basketball player. His prize skill is his tremendously accurate shooting (44% from three and .88% FT) with deep range. He offers good ball handling with a wicked crossover dribble that he uses effectively to gain space. Like most top-notch guards - Fredette has the ability to control his pace. He is excellent with the ball in his hands - playing "aggressive freestyle". ...Capable of making plays at full speed. He has excellent court vision - and had he played with better BIGs at BYU - his assist totals would have surely been higher. ...He has ability to make shots that seem like crazy, circus shots - but he hits so many of them - that you realize there is more skill than luck involved. ...This season he busted 52 points against New Mexico, 47 at Utah, 43 vs. San Diego State, and 42 at Colorado State. ...He did not play much defense at BYU but he slides his feet quickly enough and he is smart enough that I don't foresee that being too big an issue in the NBA. His offensive gifts far outweigh any defensive liabilities. ...Right handed. ... He will jack some quick shots but overall I like Jimmer Fredette and I think he will succeed in the NBA.
|Butler will be a PR staff's dream|
Xavier Silas will have worked out for ten NBA teams by the time the NBA Draft rolls around on June 23rd. ...He played his freshman season at Colorado before transferring to Northern Illinois. As a Senior he averaged 22 points per game. He is a 6'5" Shooting Guard that improved his outside shooting to the point where he hit the three-ball at 41% in 2010-11. …80% FT (career). …Unfortunately - he has way more turnovers than assists - so he is NOT a Point Guard prospect. He CAN guard PG's but offensively he needs to improve dramatically as a distributor. ...Right-handed. ...He is in great physical condition. ...Confident. ...Silas is the son of James Silas who played six seasons in the NBA.
