Understands when to be a scorer and when to be a distributor

Excellent in transition
Great free throw shooter (86.7% as a junior)
Good rebounder for a guard
Must get stronger
Athleticism is average at best
Shot selection is at times questionable
Inconsistent from beyond the arc
Doesn't have a true position at the next level

Summary: Vasquez was wise to pull his name out of the 2009 NBA Draft as he almost certainly would have been a second-round pick. In what should be a weak crop of 2010 point guards, Vasquez should get some looks late in the first round depending on whether or not NBA teams feel he can play the point at the next level. If teams don't see him as a true one, he will likely be a second-round pick.
Player Comparison: Marco Belinelli. Vasquez has a lot of traits of a typical Euro-type guard. He is a crafty scorer, can handle the basketball, and is a bit of a tweener. Belinelli entered the league with those same traits but has yet to find a home in the NBA. Vasquez likely awaits a similar fate.
Rockies and Diamondbacks fail yesterday, at least the Astros and Nats came through. For today: Closing two pars with Red Sox-178 in one and Nats -+169 in the other. In another ongoing par going in the second tier spot of a four team par will be the Astros -205. Start up par with the Dodgers -163, (Kershaw), two open. Still thinking about the Yankees in a start up. GLTA today.
@Bear Down He didn't do a horrible job even if Mitch doesn't pan out, I do believe Shaheen is going to be a monster TE for the Bears for quite a while. However Adams wouldve raised the level of the defense but Demps is a decent player and a veteran which might be just what this young secondary needs.
