2007 Pre-Draft Scouting Report by Matthew Maurer

Assets
Possesses a NBA ready body, blessed with excellent upper body strength … Moves extremely well without the ball in his hands, understanding how to free himself for shots … Works well running off screens where he is a capable shooter … Has three point range on his jumper … Good finisher in transition … Body strength enables him to convert difficult shots with ease as well as the ability to finish after contact … Plays the game with poise and maturity rarely found on the college level … Shows great patience, rarely does he play out of control or force the action … Simply allows the game to come to him … Leadership qualities and the mental toughness he brings to each game sets the tone for his team … Unselfish player who possesses solid court vision … Does a great job of feeding the post … Excellent basketball IQ, makes great decisions during games … Uses the mid-range jumper with the best of them … Despite the coverage, if you give him enough daylight his quick release allows for more than enough time to shoot … Underrated rebounder capable of making an impact on the glass … Defensively he does an admirable job of staying in front of his man … Shows good body control when he penetrates the lane … Quality free throw shooter … Extremely coachable player whose work ethic is among the best in the NCAA … Fundamentally he is as sound as them come … Despite his struggles in the Final Four last year he has proven to be a very clutch player ...

Liabilities
Afflalo is a decent athlete but not a great one capable of dominating defenders with his explosiveness … Lacks the first step to gain full separation from his defender … There are times where he becomes too perimeter oriented offensively … Would benefit more if he attacked the basket where he can put pressure on the defense … Ball handling is okay but could stand to be refined as he isn’t comfortable when pressure is applied … Some have questioned his ability to create scoring opportunities for himself … Due to his athleticism, he is closer to reaching the ceiling … Can go through periods where his jumper is inconsistent … May struggle in an up-tempo offense where quickness is a bigger factor than in a half court set … Doesn’t always look to dominate opponents, has a habit of being too passive (although he is improved) … Despite being a solid free throw shooter Afflalo’s style of play rarely allows for him to draw fouls and get to the free throw line … Lack of lift limits his ability to finish on the break and shoot over athletic defenders ...
