In Roy's freshman year at Washington, he played a tad over 20 minutes a game, so his numbers are deceiving. Roy is a complete player meaning he can a lot of things well like pass, score, shoot, rebound, and defend. Gordon will have a hard time scoring against NBA shooting guards in the league. If he can transition to an NBA point guard, then his ceiling is much higher than if he was a shooting guard. Roy can legitimately play the point guard spot with no problems.
