2007 Pre-Draft Scouting Report by Matthew Maurer

Assets
Athletically, Conley is blessed with great quickness … Defensively, he does a great job of applying heavy pressure on the perimeter with his swift hands and lateral quickness … Has a great feel for the game, understands all the small nuances that most young players don't know …. Solid runner of the offense, has the knowledge to run open and half court sets with no problems … Uses his quick first step to get past his defender … Once in the lane his body control and long arms allow him to convert with ease … Court vision is quickly maturing as he sees plays develop before the happen … Never seems rattled no matter how much pressure the opposing defense applies … Pure point guard that constantly looks to create for teammates … Possesses a high basketball IQ, rarely makes bad decisions or has mental breakdowns in crucial moments of games … Tremendous post passer … Has improved greatly during the season shooting off the dribble … Highly competitive and has the toughness needed to challenge obstacles that comes his way … Has the anticipation skills and long arms to disrupt passing lanes … Ball handling ability is first rate where he owns numerous hesitation, fakes and crossovers to create separation from his defender.

Liabilities
Has a slight frame and needs to continue to add more bulk and upper body strength to his physique … Because of this he really struggles to finish after contact occurs … Defensively he has a tendency to reach too much, giving his assignment the opportunity to drive past him … These gambles on defense can really water down his effectiveness, especially when physical guards can go through him … Remains an inconsistent shooter from the perimeter … Offensively, Conley doesn't try to utilize the mid-range shot ... Everything he does is either a drive to the basket or a three point … Below average free throw shooter … Durability may be a concern as many former NBA point guards with similar builds have struggled to stay healthy due to the 82 game schedule … Isn't always aggressive taking the ball to the basket and creating when his teammates are struggling …
