NBA Draft 2014 Player Profile: Kyle Anderson
Mark Looks at the Top Prospects in the 2014 NBA Draft
NBA Draft: June 26, 2014
USA TODAY Sports
2013-14 Season: 14.6 PPG- RPG-6.5 APG
Strengths: Could be a PG at the next level given his tremendous ball handling skills and height. His size allows him to see over the defense from which he can pass or shoot over smaller defenders. Very good shooter that hit from 50% from beyond the arc and his 7-2 wingspan makes him a tough defender and rebounder. Great decision maker that finds the open man or creates his own shot.
Weakness: Slow afoot and not blessed with great quickness or athleticism. On the thin side and needs to bulk up to compete with the big men at the next level. The lack of foot speed and lateral quickness could be a liability when defending smaller guards. Anderson's shot can come and go at times.
Projection: Anderson can play several positions given his varied skillsets which are attributes coveted by everybody. His lack of athleticism is a concern and a reason he will fall somewhere around the #20 pick, give or take.
