2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Dion Waiters


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-4, 215

School: Syracuse, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Athleticism
  • Attacking the basket
  • Very effective in one-on-one iso situations
  • Physical, strong build helps him on the drive
  • Capable three-point shooter
  • Can play either guard position
  • Especially dangerous in transition
  • Creative finisher around the hoop
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Reading and jumping passing lanes



    Weaknesses:
  • Plays exclusively zone at Syracuse, so will have to prove himself as a man-to-man defender
  • Shot selection
  • Forces the issue too often
  • Inconsistent outside shooter

    Summary: After a disappointing freshman season, Waiters has developed into one of the top sixth men in college basketball. If he turns pro after this year, he would likely be a top-20 pick, but might be better served returning for his junior season and further establishing himself in a starting role with a chance at becoming a lottery pick in 2013.

    Player Comparison: Rodney Stuckey. Like Stuckey, Waiters is a combo guard whose best role would be playing the two than running the point, but is capable doing either. Both players rely on their strength and physicality to get buckets in the lane, and can also shoot the three ball.
