Sophomore/North Carolina State Wolfpack
USA TODAY Sports
2013-14 Season: 24.9 PPG-7.1 RPG-1.1 APG
Strengths: Has the ability to score at anytime and in bunches. Is in constant motion at both ends of the floor and is generally in the right spot at the right time. Can create his own shot with range that extends to the three point line. Very strong and can play a bit of the power game close to the basket. Plays tough defense and can hit the glass because of his tendency to be in position at all times.
Weakness: Doesn't have a great wingspan which could present a problem getting his shot off and defending at the next level. Not as athletic as his numbers in college say so quickness at both ends of the floor are a question mark. His long range shooting needs work especially if he struggles in other areas.
Projection: Any team that needs scoring off the bench will have an interest in Warren and that means just about all teams. The question is where a team chooses to use a valuable pick on scoring potential off the bench in the middle of the first round or later although he has an upside and could develop in to a bigger role.
