Anthony Barber NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-2 - PG - NC State

"Cat" is a quick, skinny lead guard who plays with a ton of confidence.

Pros
Barber is an exceptional passer and distributor who can really control the game on the offensive end. Has great handles and is equally attempt at driving left or right.

Has top end quickness and a great feel for penetrating into the lane and creating a shot for others, or getting his own shot. Has nice elevation on his jumper and is much improved in this area.

Has good length, quick hands and great lateral quickness, making him an excellent one on one defender.

Cons
Isn't the strongest player and can get out muscled in the paint. Has quickness but not top end explosiveness and above the rim ability.

Needs to get more consistent with his shooting, especially from downtown.

Comparisons
Quick like Ish Smith.

Projection: late first or early second round pick in the 2016 NBA Draft
