2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: James Anderson


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-6, 210

School: Oklahoma State, Junior


Strengths:
  • Gunner from the outside
  • Nice pull-up jump shot
  • Extremely quick release
  • Doesn't need much space to get his shot off
  • Improved slasher adds to his versatility on offense
  • Smooth finisher especially in transition
  • Good court vision in finding open teammates when attacking the basket
  • Effective posting up smaller defenders
  • Free throw shooting
  • Ideal size for an NBA two-guard



    Weaknesses:
  • Lateral quickness on defense
  • Still tends to dribble too much
  • Needs to become a better creator off the bounce
  • Can't go right (favors his left hand when driving to the basket)

    Summary: In a lot of ways, Anderson has the prototypical game for the next level. He has good size, strength and ability to score in a variety of ways. I think he can fit in right away and be a valuable scoring option off the bench for whichever team drafts him. He will likely be a top-20 pick and could work his way into the lottery depending on which shooting guards declare for the draft.

    Player Comparison: Brandon Rush. Rush was a great scorer in college but relies too much on his perimeter game. Anderson is in a similar mode. The Cowboy junior might be a little more dangerous off the bounce, but like Rush, can stroke it from deep. I see Anderson being a borderline starter like Rush has been early in his career with the Pacers.
