2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Willie Warren


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-4, 207

School: Oklahoma, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • A pure scorer in all aspects on the offensive end
  • Is able to create his own shot on the perimeter with ease
  • His strength and aggressiveness allow him to be a fearless penetrator
  • Exceptionally quick first step
  • Great mid-range game and true threat from downtown
  • Makes up for his "tweener" status with his strong build
  • Plays with a certain swagger without coming off as cocky
  • Tremendous handles in breaking down his defender



    Weaknesses:
  • Tends to try and do too much offensively, often forcing shots
  • Not the ideal height for an NBA two-guard, but doesn't have the skills of a true point
  • While he is a play-maker, Warren lacks a sense of court vision
  • Needs to show more commitment on the defensive end as the ability to be a lockdown perimeter is there

    Summary: One word describes Warren's sophomore campaign; disappointing. He returned to school to prove he could be the go-to guy after Blake Griffin, but failed to live up to that expectation as the Sooners have struggled mightily. Add in a season-ending ankle injury and Warren has gone from a possible top-five pick to a late first-round prospect. At this point, Warren is better off returning to school and trying to re-build his draft stock that took a massive hit this season.

    Player Comparison: Ben Gordon. Both Gordon and Warren are big-time scorers who don't fit the mold of a prototypical NBA shooting guard. The Sooner sophomore has the potential to take over games on the offensive end just like Gordon.
