2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Paul George


Position: Guard/Forward

Size: 6-9, 215

School: Fresno State, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Unique skill set for a 6-9 player
  • Outside shooting
  • Quick catch and release
  • Can take defenders off the bounce and finish due to his size and length
  • Great body control in the lane
  • Explosive finisher
  • Is a tough matchup defensively due to his versatility
  • Free throw shooting
  • Length makes him a factor on the glass and as a shot blocker
  • Still loaded with potential



    Weaknesses:
  • Turns the ball over too much
  • Must become a better ball-handler
  • Ability to create his own shot
  • Needs to get stronger
  • Will have to become a better perimeter defender

    Summary: George somewhat flew under the radar playing for a struggling Fresno State team. As he has received more exposure since declaring for the 2010 NBA Draft, his abilities have caught the attention of NBA teams and he will likely not fall out of the lottery, possibly even being drafted as high as No. 8 making his decision to turn pro a wise one.

    Player Comparison: A poor-man's Tracy McGrady. Due to George's wirey build, length and overall skill set as a wing player, he has drawn comaprisons to a young T-Mac. Whether or not he can become the player McGrady was early in his career will depend on his development, but the tools are there for him to become a special player.
