Marcus Paige NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-0 - Point Guard - North Carolina

Undersized but effective point guard who is a great outside shooter.

Pros
A true point guard who understands his role as a facilitator. Shows good poise and gets his team into their offensive sets well. Looks to pass more than to score and is a team first player.

Good free throw shooter who is a weapon with the ball in his hands at the end of games. Handles the ball well with either hand and can get separation with good lateral quickness.

Has become a very good three point shooter and clutch performer.

Cons
Lacks size and will have a lot of trouble matching up against NBA talent. Is a decent but not great athlete and doesn't have the type of speed needed to make up for his lack of size.

Comparisons
Reminds of Tyronn Lue and Tyler Ennis.


Projection: second round pick in the 2016 NBA Draft
