2002 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Mobile player who is a solid runner on the court ... When his feet are set he is capable of making the 12 foot jumper ... Does a good job of using his speed and footwork to get quality looks around the basket ... Understands what his limits are offensively and rarely exceeds them ... Hustler who will dive on the floor or fight for loose balls ... Decent offensive rebounder who gets a good portion of his points on tip-ins and put-backs ... Solid work ethic as Archibald has improved each year ... Physical player who has added upper body strength to his frame ... Possess nice touch around the basket as he can convert a number of lay-ins and hook shots ... Post footwork enables him to get good position on his defenders ... In terms of rebounding he is a decent contributor on the boards despite having limited minutes ...

Weakness: Has a tendency to play over aggressive defensively which leads him to collect easy fouls ... Could stand some improvement on his post ball handling … Has a habit of putting the ball on the floor in order to establish offensive rhythm which can lead to easy steal opportunities ... Limited somewhat offensively as he has yet to consistently shot from the outside ... Health remains a concern due to his chronic back problems that have plagued him throughout his career ... After catching the ball in the lane he sometimes hesitates when setting up his offense which can allow double teams to plague him ... Shot blocking despite his size isn’t a strength due to his lack of quickness when leaping ... Hasn’t always played at a consistent level although to his credit this has happened less this year ... Rebounding technique could stand to be refined as he doesn't always get rebounds out of his position ... Could stand to add some moves facing the basket where he doesn’t seem all that comfortable ...
