2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Tony Wroten


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-5, 205

School: Washington, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Slasher
  • Ability to create
  • Finishing around the rim
  • Excels in transition
  • Quickness in the open floor
  • Ball handler
  • Killer crossover
  • Athleticism
  • Great size for a point guard
  • Can effectively back down smaller point guards
  • Rebounds well for his position
  • Length helps him as a defender



    Weaknesses:
  • Decision-making
  • Tries to be too fancy
  • Outside shooting
  • Free throw shooting
  • Defensive effort

    Summary: With his combination of size, athleticism and ability to see the floor as a passer, Wroten is a unique point guard prospect. His decision-making and poor outside shooting are holding him back, but based on potential alone, Wroten is one of the top point guard propsects and could go as high as the late lottery if he chooses to be a one-and-done.

    Player Comparison: Tyreke Evans. Evans is a big point guard who thrives on the ability to his size, strength and quickness to get to the basket since he is not a good outside shooter. Wroten has those same attributes, though is not as dominant at the college level as Evans was during his lone year at Memphis. I would be surprised if Wroten made the immediate impact in the NBA that Evans did, but the potential is there.
