Nick Collison E-mail

2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Shows highly advanced back to the basket skills where he has an assortment of moves ... These moves include the up and under, hook shot, and even the turnaround jumper... Decently mobile player who has no problem running the court... Post footwork is refined and very coordinated ... Excellent passer for his size who has no problem recognizing teammates on the floor... Owns a nice 16 foot jumper that he can make with some regularity ... Fundamentally sound player who has a great understanding of the game ... Despite his lack of explosiveness Collison shows excellent technique at boxing his man out... Fine outlet passer to help ignite the fast break ... Ball handling ability is above average for his position ... Excels in the high post offense where he maximizes his ability with his passing, dribbling or shooting from mid-range ... Patient when he posts up as he uses a number of body jabs and pumpfakes to get his defender off their feet... Possess soft touch around the basket where he is a great finisher... Moves extremely well without the ball... Has three point range on his jumper ...

Weakness: Athletically he is not a possessor of great quickness or leaping ability ... Could stand to shoot the mid-range jumper with more consistency ... Defensively he can struggle to guard strong physical players making him foul prone ... Although he has greatly improved Collison can still go through periods of play where he doesn't perform consistently ... Will not be a super shot blocker on the NBA level because of his lack of explosiveness ... Doesn't have those strong vice grip like hands that most high tier power forwards possess ... Can try to do a little too much to take his defender off the dribble from the high post... This can make for some costly turnovers ... Not always aggressive at taking the ball to the basket to draw fouls ... Despite his soft touch around the basket Collison is a mediocre free throw shooter...
