To small and light with no consistent outside shot and he is not even a PG. to be at that height as a SG you must have a good outside shot. Trey Burke will do better.

QUOTE(#6):

agree- but he could be a functional 6th manand will find a landing spot somewhere- but he should not be drafted near/towards the top

Definitely agree. While he is very small, he has a knack for putting the ball in the basket. He averaged nearly 20 points a game this season. He could be instant offense off the bench for a team.

A good season and a national championship (in which he got yanked), does not an N.B.A. player make.
