2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Marquis Teague


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-2, 189

School: Kentucky, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Three-point shooting
  • Extremely quick first step
  • Dangerous off the bounce
  • Finishing at the rim
  • Excels in transition
  • Strong build allows him to handle contact when driving
  • Has shown steady growth throughout his freshman year as a floor general
  • Drive and dish/kick ability
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Three-point range
  • On-the-ball defender



    Weaknesses:
  • Inconsisntent outside shooter
  • Has a little hesitation hitch in his jump shot
  • Decision-making a work in progress
  • Needs to improve court vision in the halfcourt

    Summary: Like previous John Calipari-coached point guards, Teague steadily improved during his freshman season after getting off to a bit of a shaky start. He is not in the same class as John Wall, Derrick Rose or Tyreke Evans, but is certainly still a first-round talent. He could go anywhere from the mid-teens to late first round in this weaker class of point-guard prospects.

    Player Comparison: Ramon Sessions. Sessions was a play-making point guard early in his career like Teague; relying on his ability to get to the basket and set up teammates. Sessions hasn't been much of an outside shooter throughout his career (this year being the exception) and Teague has a ways to go in that area as well.
