2007 Pre-Draft Scouting Report by Matthew Maurer

Assets
Has worked hard this past season to become a more consistent three point shooter … Ball handling ability and foot speed allow him to effectively take defenders off the dribble … Perimeter defense is among the best in the college ranks … Physically he possesses the tools of an elite defender … Quick hands, anticipation skills and great lateral movement … Does a great job of disrupting passing lanes … What may be even more impressive is his ability to effectively deny his man the ball out on the perimeter … Court vision enables him to see the floor well … Unselfish player who will look consistently for open teammates … Quality rebounder for his position where his athleticism and long arms aid him greatly … Moves well without the ball, constantly attempts to run off screens and makes good cuts to the basket … Great NBA ready body that will enable him the comfort of adding more weight without sacrificing any speed … Possesses great body control on his drives … Plays the game with emotion and will display his competitive spirit in the heat of battle … First step allows him to gain separation from his defender … Feel for the game is advanced … Versatile guard able to rotate over and play the point guard position for a short time, as he showed taking over the position for his entire junior season … Excellent finisher in transition.

Liabilities
Remains an inconsistent shooter from the perimeter … Can lose his confidence offensively if his shot isn’t falling early on … When this happens it’s uncommon for Strawberry to defer to teammates … Has the ability to create off the dribble but struggles to convert off the dribble … Tends to struggle when he has to play in a half court set as teams will often play him for his perimeter shot … Tends to force the action a bit as he will shoot difficult attempts … Must continue to improve his shooting off the dribble from mid-range … Must continue to improve upon protecting the ball when dribbling in traffic … Defensively Strawberry will at times overplay his man trying to gain easy steals … The result is that he often is out of position to effectively defend his assignment … Doesn’t finish at times after contact in the lane … Lacks the explosiveness to get his shot off over bigger opponents … Could be smaller than his listed 6-foot-5.

Good kid who made a name for him self guarding LeBron James in High School. He is a great defensive player if he gets better offensively he may play in the league some day. Of course his dad is the one and only Daryl Strawberry who I heard lives in St.Louis. Big Ups DJ
