Draft Scouting 2002
Oregon 6'4" 218 PG,
SG - SR.
Sturdy, 6'3 1/2" frame,
tremendous quickness and speed. Right hander, takes it to the hoop
with authority. He can finish in traffic, dunking on larger men.
Fearless. Did not show clutchness vs. Cal, missing two shots to
win, but rebounded with game winning runner at USC 02/28/02. Ready
to help right now. He hits the offensive glass, jumps well. ...I
love Freddie Jones! Averaged 19 pts., 5 reb., and 3 ast. as a SR.
Excellent free throw shooter at 87%. A man with with his speed,
power, and touch combination is rare. He has the power and explosion
of Baron Davis. He is more two guard than point guard. He rebounds
well for a guard. He can score in bunches. Jones improved dramatically
last season playing two guard. At 6'2", his frame is built well
enough to handle the gig. For his Oregon career, ranked in the top
10 in eight different categories. He has long arms. His standing
reach of 8'4" is 4 inches higher than Matt Barnes who stands 6'8".
