@Mr. Bitter Weddle is actually the perfect free agent addition for the Raiders, no matter who they draft, and for several reasons. First of all, he still plays at a high level, and, he now has something more to prove, especially if he gets to play his former team twice. Second, while his age might seem like an issue to many people, his age actually works to the Raiders favor. First, because he provides there secondarywithveteran leadership that will be sorely lacking with Woidsons exit, and second, because he wont require a long term commitment. The Raiders can tie up a chunk of money that theyneed to spend, but not get in the way of future extensions or contracts.
My first edition. Only one trade. I make picks using multiple big boards from different sites, and my own scouting. I try to fill needs as best as possible. This will change when FA moves define themselves.
Can take defenders off the bounce and finish due to his size and length
Great body control in the lane
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
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.
