Re: Dion Waiters 2012 NBA Draft Workout - Impact Basketball
I think Waiters is a pretty sure bet. His jumper is streaky and a bit of an issue, in spite of this video, but you know a few things about what you're getting. He's physical, tough, strong, ballsy, and will go to the hoops. The groundwork is there for him to be a good defender, although Syracuse's zone makes that hard to see usually.
If his jumper continues to improve, he could be really good. But the basement on him is pretty high. And he's not like Rivers in that he's going to need a specific fit to make it work. The things he brings to the table will fit in pretty much anywhere.
