2002 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Athletic at 6-9 he is very quick for his size … Good ball handler as he can take most opposing defenders off the dribble … Has 3-point range on his jumpshot if you leave him open he is capable of draining it … Explosive scorer in that if he gets hot he can single handedly beat you … Contributes on the boards as his long arms and height help him snag rebounds … Creates mismatches as he is often taller than most opposing guards and quicker than most forwards … Great size as he will be able to shoot over most defenders … Is a good enough ball handler to bring the ball up the court to lead the break … Unlike many small school phenoms Slay isn’t afraid of the high tier schools as Kentucky can bare witness too this season when he dropped 26 points and 10 rebounds … A good finisher in transition as he has no problem running on the break and is athletic enough to score in a variety of ways …

Weakness: Has fallen in love with shooting from the outside as he relies way too much on the 3-point shot … Not much of a passer as he is somewhat of a gunner in that he will throw up any shot that he gets … Defense is below average seems to focus all his energies into scoring … Shot selection not the best as many times he just seems to force up shots … Could really use 10-15 pounds of upper body strength which would benefit him greatly … Although generally taller than his defender he rarely takes advantage of the mismatch preferring to shoot from the perimeter instead of posting up … Hasn’t really shown the type of consistency that being a star player demands as one game he’ll drop 20 plus and the next he scores 12 … Not the strongest shooter from the mid-range perimeter …
