2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: William Buford


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-5, 205

School: Ohio State, Junior


Strengths:
  • Pure shooter
  • Catch and shoot ability
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Comes off screens well
  • Nice post-up game for an off guard
  • Good turnaround jump shot
  • Uses ball fakes to create space to get off his shot
  • Athleticism
  • Able finisher when he does get to the rim



    Weaknesses:
  • Too often falls in love with his jumper
  • Needs to be more aggressive in attacking the basket
  • Ball-handling could use improvement in iso situations
  • Tends to show his frustration when his shot is not falling and carries it over to the defensive end
  • Not a great perimeter defender

    Summary: Buford has been forced to play out of position a bit this season as he starts at point guard for the Buckeyes. He is at his best when he can play his more natural off-guard position when Aaron Craft comes off the bench to run the show. He has a world of talent but has deterred to Jared Sullinger this season which hurts his draft value. Still, he would likely be a first round if he chose to forgo his final year of eligibility.

    Player Comparison: Anthony Morrow. Morrow just has a great all-around feel for scoring the basketball and Buford possesses that talent as well. Both guys are athletic enough to get to the basket but rely more on their outside jumper as their best weapon.
