Aher Uguak, 6-7 SF, Edmonton, 1999
-Very good size and length for a wing prospect 6' 7 with a 6' 10.5 wingspan and a 201-pound frame that still has room to fill out. Proportionate upper and lower body.
-Solid athlete. Can play above the rim in space.
-Nice touch on his catch and shoot jumper. Gets good rotation. Solid mechanics.
-Can straight line slash a little bit.
-Potential defensively thanks to his tools.
-Good not great athlete.
-Fairly rigid ball handler. Limited to straight line drives. Struggles getting to his jumper off the bounce.
-Very basic offensive game. Not the most comfortable playmaker.
-Streaky spot up shooter. Doesn't catch on the hop. Release isn't all that quick. Needs to be able to make shots consistently due to his limitations as a shot creator.
-Has room to improve his defensive fundamentals.
Outlook Uguak has the tools and shooting potential to eventually develop into a 3 and D type of prospect after four years at New Mexico. He's not a very flashy player, as he isn't an advanced half court scorer or playmaker, but it's not easy to find wings with size and length that can make a shot and defend. Uguak has the ability to both; it's just a matter of how well that will determine his fate as a prospect.
