Scouting Report: Big-time scoring forward.
Strengths: Very solid frame. Big-time scorer. Good rebounder. Has three-point range on his jumper. Huge wingspan. Very athletic. Great elevation on his jumper. Strong finisher – gets lots of “and ones”. Experienced – averaged over 28 minutes/game his last three years in college.
Weaknesses: Stuck between positions in the NBA – not big enough for the post – doesn’t have wing player skills. Awkward form on his jump shot. More turnovers than assists for his collegiate career. Didn’t play in a “power conference”
Projected 2008 Draft Range: Mid second round pick to undrafted.
Consensus: If Daniels can prove he can play small forward in the NBA, he may have a chance to stick in the League.
