2012 NBA Draft – Dion Waiters
Dion Waiters – Syracuse, Guard (Syracuse)
2011-2012 Statistics: 12.6 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 2.5 apg
Strengths: An efficient scorer who is a willing passer. Played both guard positions in college and could do so in the NBA as well. Very athletic and explosive. Will knock down the open jumper.
Weaknesses: Will have to adjust to playing man-to-man defense rather than zone like he did at Syracuse. Slightly undersized for someone who will primarily play shooting guard.
Projection: Mid to late first round
NBA Comparison: Jamal Crawford/Marcus Thornton
