    Gordon vs McDermott

    Aaron Gordon


    • Great defender. Can defend 3s.

    • Great rebounder.

    • Great court vision (can pass).

    • Can bring the ball up court like a PG.

    • Great in TRAN.

    • High BB IQ.

    • Unselfish player.

    • Will turn 19 in September.


    • Wretched FT shooter (44%).

    • Numbers fell across the spectrum in conference play.

    • Might not be lengthy enough to play 4.

    • If he can't fix his shooting mechanics, won't be much more than a role player, albeit a good one. TBH, would you use the #6 on a role player? Ask the Bobcats how they feel about MKG.

    • Utah might take him at #5.


    Doug McDermott


    • Deadly 3pt shooter.

    • Can pass.

    • High BB IQ.

    • Showed surprising ATHL at the Combine.

    • Knows how to play D - help D, P/R D, etc. and can pick up D schemes.

    • Can move without the ball.

    • Can score from anywhere.

    • Has successfully mimicked Dirk right knee kick on fadeaways an spot jumpers.

    • Is a Senior, but has been consistently productive throughout is 4 year career.


    • Knows how to play D, but lacks strength and length to defend 4s and there are doubts about his ability to guard 3s.

    • Can score inside, but lack of length and explosiveness will hinder his ability to finish around the rim.

    • Don't expect him to rebound. You'll be disappointed.

    McDermott will have less pressure on him to be the man in the NBA which could translate to other parts of his game improving.

    Pros - McDermott - highest PER rating per Draftexpress in either first or second round, by a good two points!

    If no Bynum injury, no Gasol trade - last word!!

    I'm not crazy about either guy...and this draft, if we actually pick at #6 and don't trade it, has to be a starter and a good one.

    Re: Gordon vs McDermott

    i think both players are reaches at #6 and that gordon is a redundancy given our current roster makeup. i honestly think both players are role players at this point. mcbuckets may never be more than that. gordon has potential, but a way to go before he's there.
