2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Maalik Wayns


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-1, 185

School: Villanova, Junior


Strengths:
  • Quickness
  • Blow-by first step allows him to get to the basket
  • Terrific in the open floor
  • Handling contact when attacking the rim
  • Body control in the lane
  • Drive-and-dish ability
  • Three-point range
  • Free-throw shooting
  • Strength for his size



    Weaknesses:
  • Inconsistent outside shooter
  • Turnover-prone
  • Not a true distributor
  • Forces issue too frequently
  • Shot selection
  • Not an NBA-caliber athlete

    Summary: Wayns is making a mistake by leaving school early, as there is a realistic chance he'll go undrafted. He is a volume scorer who doesn't shoot the ball well from distance and never proved to be a true floor leader during his three years at Villanova. Plus, he lacks the ideal athleticism compared to the ideal NBA-level point guard.

    Player Comparison: John Lucas. An undersized point guard who is more of a scorer than distributor, Lucas has struggled to find a role in the NBA and has floated around the D-League and overseas. Wayns figures to experience a similar situation as he will have to work his way onto a NBA roster, which won't be easy.
