Overview: A strong shooting guard who has consistently fallen into situations where he has gotten a great deal of playing time. Undersized for his position, and not tremendously athletic to make up for that. Good strength for a shooting guard. Not a very skilled or creative offensive player, but plays very good defense to make up for that. Shows a willingness to compete on every possession on that end. Made that very clear during his days at Kentucky. Didn't always put up great numbers, but was a consummate team player for Tubby Smith. Was the SEC Player of the Year as a senior in 2003. Has become a very good role player with the Magic.
Offense: Almost exclusively a 3-point shooter at this point in his career, but is pretty effective in this role. Not very effective off the dribble. An average ball-handler at best. Doesn't make many mistakes with the ball, nor will he be very aggressive with his dribble drive. Makes smart passes, but isn't a playmaker. Likes to go left, and is very effective when he does. Doesn't get many looks at the rim, and rarely gets to the free throw line. Isn't asked to function as much more than a spot up player, but is solid all around.
Defense: A very solid defender who uses his strength to his advantage. Does a good job getting into position to deny dribble penetration. Won't get pushed around on the block or by a ball handler trying to get a step. Has a hard time defending taller swingmen. Doesn't take many risks as a half court defender. Shows a willingness to get on the floor when he can grab a loose ball. Always turns with the shot and looks to box out and secure the rebound. Not a playmaker, but the type of solid defender that coaches love to bring off the bench.
