kyle-weaver-1.jpg Kyle Weaver - The Draft Review charlotte Kyle Weaver - The Draft Review

Strengths: Versatile player with the ability to play both guard positions on the floor … Nice all around game to make an impact with his passing, scoring and rebounding … Terrific ball handler uses his first step and a number of crossovers to get past most defenders … Once in the lane, Weaver has great body control and will use his long arms to finish in traffic … Possesses three point range on his shot … Owns a tremendous basketball IQ that enables him to make great decisions with the ball in his hands … Great passer with good court vision to see the floor … Dangerous in drive and dish situations when the defense collapses … Moves well without the ball … Thinks the game at a very high level and does a lot of the intangibles that go unnoticed in the box score … Does a great job running the offense in fast break opportunities with his passing and court awareness … Hustler who doesn’t give up on plays … Defensively, he does a great job using his anticipation skills to disrupt passing lanes … Excellent perimeter defender blessed with long arms, quick hands and above average lateral quickness … Work ethic is considerable and appears very coachable …

Weaknesses: While Weaver has made great strides shooting from the perimeter he remains very inconsistent … Not an elite level athlete with great explosiveness … Undeveloped body strength keeps him from being able to finish after contact occurs … His body type suggests that adding more weight may be difficult … Has developed his game to a degree that many wonder how much more he can improve before reaching his ceiling of potential … Offensively, Weaver he lacks a scorer's mindset and seems all too content to defer to teammates instead of stepping up and taking shots … Durability could be a real concern as not many players with his body type are injury free in the NBA … When slashing to the basket, Weaver can be too predictable and forces passes that aren’t there … Mediocre shooter off the dribble who isn’t consistent pulling-up from mid-range … Doesn’t get full separation from his defender when driving to the basket … Lack of strength prevents him from being able to post-up players on mismatches …

Kyle never really got a chance to prove urself in the NBA. how many teams looking for explosive point guards or extremely athletic shooting guards. Kyle and Wes Matthews played in the same state with Wes being the better of the two at that time. Kyle's ability to lock down any player give him the edge of Wes and my book. 13 the car were on were not in the need of shooting guards at that time had the Bobcats kept Kyle I believe he'd still be playing in the leaves today.
