Doug McDermott

Mar 23, 2014; San Antonio, TX, USA; Creighton Bluejays forward Doug McDermott (3) reacts on the bench in the second half of a men

He’s a killer shooter.  He can bomb from 30 ft. away.  He takes quick shots around the painted area.  He’s a high-level scorer at the NCAA level.  Why is he on the list?  He lacks great isolation skills.  If we were to breakdown his triple threat skills, shooting would be his best attribute.  Ball-handling?  Average at best.  Passing?  Average at best. Shot-creation?  Sub-par.  He struggles defending the small forward or power forward position projected at the next level, either due to lack of strength or lateral quickness.  If he gains strength, he can be a key contributor for a team.  But, who wants a stretch-four, who is an average rebounder, with average athletic tools, and sits behind the 3-point line?  That’s fine for guys like Ryan Anderson, picked #21.  Pick #7?  There are more dynamic players.
