Hoops Analyst on Small Forwards (Wesley Johnson in particular)



The always thoughtful Ed Weiland analyzes the Small Forwards.

Here is a small sampling:

 

Wesley Johnson

"I have to believe that this is the future for Johnson. That he’s not much more than a good supporting player. That he’s a 2nd banana at best and probably not even that good. He just never scored at the level star SFs historically have been at and there’s nothing else in his numbers to suggest he’s anything different. Normally a career like the one enjoyed by a player like George Lynch or Shane Battier would be a good thing, especially considering where Johnson was a year ago. The problem is that Johnson is currently ticketed to go as high as #4 in this draft."

 

Gordon Hayward

"So where does Gordon Hayward rank? That’s a tough question, because I’m still not sure after spending 3 paragraphs defending him. The truth is I still think the mocks that have him going in the lottery overrate him a little. Right now he’s a player who has great potential as a scorer, but is probably a little soft defensively. The problem is he hasn’t shown he can handle a big scoring load, just that he can be extremely efficient with a lighter load."

 

Devin Ebanks

"Ebanks just isn’t there yet as a prospect. He falls short in every important category and has yet to show any ability to hit a 3-pointer, which can always be sort of a saving grace for such a prospect. If anything he has shown some poor judgment shooting treys, hitting only 8 of the 70 he’s hoisted up in 2 seasons."
