2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Michael Carter-Williams


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-6, 185

School: Syracuse, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Court vision
  • Creating for his teammates
  • Terrific in drive and kick situations
  • Slashing ability
  • Utilizes floater in the lane
  • Excels in transition, leading the break
  • Size for a point guard
  • Athleticism
  • Great rebounder for his position
  • Length is bothersome on defense
  • Jumping the passing lane
  • Maturity as a young point guard




  • Weaknesses:
  • Strength/physicality
  • Outside shooting
  • Dribbles the ball a bit high because of his height


  • Summary: After waiting his turn as a freshman, Carter-Williams has broken onto the national scene as one of the top point guards in college basketball. He is a pure point guard with a tremendous ability to distribute the basketball and affect the game with his unique size for the position. If Carter-Williams continues to play at such a high level this season, he will be a lottery pick and perhaps the first true point guard taken in the 2013 NBA Draft.

    Player Comparison: A taller Rajon Rondo. Rondo is a point guard first, a scorer second. Carter-Williams is an identical type of player. Both guys are one of the top distributors at their level, impact the game in a variety of ways, and are at their best in transition or attacking the tin, but struggling shoot the rock from the outside. It's a stretch to say Carter-Williams will be as productive a pro as Rondo, but the former's 6-6 size gives him a unique attribute that few point guards possess.
