2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Darington Hobson


Position: Guard/Forward

Size: 6-7, 205

School: New Mexico, Junior


Strengths:
  • Great athlete and leaper
  • Pure stroke from the perimeter
  • Versatility to run the point
  • Effective slasher
  • Outstanding creator who can find the open man
  • Court vision
  • Terrific in the open court
  • Can back down smaller defenders
  • Length makes him a more effective defender and rebounder
  • Guards multiple positions



    Weaknesses:
  • Needs to add muscle to his thin frame
  • Turnover prone
  • Free throw shooting
  • Must become a more proficient three-point shooter at the next level

    Summary: I call him the "Evan Turner of the West." Hobson and Turner are the only two players in the country to average at least 15 points, eight rebounds and four assists a game, which says something about their versatility. Despite this being Hobson's first year of Division I college basketball, he chose to turn pro. He could sneak into the late first round but more than likely will be taken in the second.

    Player Comparison: A Shaun Livingston/Matt Barnes mix. Livingston is a 6-7 point guard who was known for his playmaking ability heading into the NBA which is similar to Hobson who played a point forward role for Lobos. Hobson also has some Matt Barnes in his game due to his rebounding ability and versatility, and will probably play some two and three at the next level as well.
