Strengths: Terran Petteway is an explosive athlete with great size and sees the floor well. Petteway has quick feet and can maneuver his way to the basket with ease. Petteway has improved range and can get quite hot from beyond the arc. Petteway is a shotmaker and enjoys being that go-to guy offensively. Petteway shot a decent 74.9 percent from the free throw line. Petteway has good lateral quickness that helps him on the defensive side. Petteway has a high motor and plays with great energy. Petteway is extremely competitive and wants to win in the worst way. Petteway could play either two-guard or small forward. Terran Petteway is a leader and while a bit aggressive, he always wants what’s best for the team.
Weaknesses: Terran Petteway settles way too much on jumpers instead of attacking the basket. Petteway was difficult to coach in certain games, as you could tell his shot selection really drove his coaches nuts. Petteway can play out of control, leading to turnovers. Petteway can get too caught up in his emotions at times. Petteway will be 23 years old in October.
Projection: Terran Petteway was one of my favorite college players, as his potential is extremely high and there’s not much he can’t do on the offensive end. However, will Petteway stop settling for so many poor shots and focus more on driving to the cup? If so, you have a potential gem in the second round. If not, Petteway will spend a lot of time overseas or in the D-League. I really hope Petteway listens and tweaks his game, as he could do some nice things at the next level.
