I’m somewhat miffed by this analysis of D-Leaguer (and former Arthur Hill standout) Dar Tucker in Draft Express. The scout, Matt Kamalsky, refers to Tucker as an “intriguing” shooting guard prospect and in the same paragraph points out that he can’t shoot.
Here are the numbers: 37% from the field, 16% from 3-point range and 63% from the foul line.
Does that sound like a future NBA shooting guard to you? I mean, seriously, he’s out of college, in the D-League and still can’t shoot? How many guys in the NBA learned how to shoot after the age of 22?
One of the more intriguing players here from a pure potential standpoint, Dar Tucker was fairly up and down in his two games at the Showcase, showing many of the problems that led to him being undrafted (by the NBA) this past summer. A super long and athletic undersized shooting guard, Tucker just doesn’t have a reliable jump shot, but plays as if he does
