Does a great job of getting his hand in passing lanes
Incredible basketball IQ
Lacks ideal athleticism for an NBA two guard
Played entirely in a 2-3 zone so doesn't have much man-to-man experience on defense
Summary: Known primarily as a three-point assassin during his career at Syracuse, Rautins developed into a solid all-around player which makes him an interesting prospect. A team that is need of an intelligent sharpshooter might take a chance on him in the second round. His lack of ideal athleticism limits his potential effectiveness at the next level but I still think he could be a valuable bench player for some team.
Player Comparison: Anthony Parker. Parker has made a living in the NBA due to his three-point shooting and defensive abilities which have allowed him to be a valuable role player. Rautins will need to be a similar player if he has any hopes of playing in the NBA. Parker actually spent a few years overseas before returning to the NBA which might be a path Rautins will also have to take.
