This is a very weak year for NBA point guards. Only 4 players will likely go in the 1st round and I bet all 10 players on this list will not get drafted.
1.Kendall Marshall North Carolina Soph. 6’4” -Marshall is a true point guard than you just don’t see a lot of anymore. His court vision, and passing ability are off the charts. Marshall really has high basketball IQ, and he knows how to lead a team. Marshall needs to improve his shooting ability as well as get quicker. Over this past season Marshall improved his three point shot. If I were a scorer I would want Marshall as my point guard.
2. Damian Lillard Weber State Jr 6’3”– Lillard stock has been on the rise for a long time now. Don’t be fooled by him playing at a small school. Lillard biggest strength is his ability to score the ball in a multiple ways. He shot over 40 % from three last season and he can get to the hole with his terrific athletic ability. The only true question for Lillard is can he handle being a point guard or his he a scorer. It will probably can him a while to learn how to run a team.
3. Marquis Teague Kentucky Fr. 6’2”- The first thing you noticed about Teague is his athleticism and quickness. Teague is an excellent ball handler, with the court vision that all elite point guards have. His quickness and ball handling skills let him beat his man 1 on and 1; this allows him to get to the rim or pull up for a jump shot. He needs to continue to work on his jump shot; it will improve with time. Sometimes he is too out of control, which causes him to turnover the ball.
4. Tony Wroten Washington Fr. 6’5”- For a taller guard Wroten has a pretty good handle on the ball. He has elite level athletic ability and can get to the rim with the best of them. The questions about Wroten center around his jump shooting ability and his decision making skills.
5.Tyshawn Taylor Kansas Sr. 6’3”- Taylor is something you don’t see very often a 4 year player at a major college. Taylor can look like the best point guard at times and awful the next game. That is his biggest issue he is very inconsistent. He turns the ball over way too much and struggles to shot from distance. He excels at the mid range game and getting to the rim.
6.Scott Machado Iona Sr. 6’1”
7. Tu Holloway Xavuer Sr. 6’
8.Maalik Wayns Villanova Jr. 6’2”
9.Jordan Taylor Wisconsin Sr. 6’1”
10. Casper Ware Long Beach State Sr. 5’9”
