Draft Notes

Jaquez is a multi-talented player who does it all on the court and makes winning plays.

He’s a talented scorer who can get his own shot in iso situations. He’s got the size for the NBA game and is becoming a knockdown shooter from outside. He also uses ball fakes well and is adept at drawing fouls.

Jaquez is a hard-nosed player who loves to mix it up and play a physical game. At 225lbs he’s got a strong frame and can hold his own on defense and in the paint and isn’t afraid to battle inside with the bigs.

Jaquez isn’t a big time run/jump athlete but he’s got more than enough speed and burst for the NBA game. He also has a great feel for the game which helps him to be in the right place at the right time.

Uses ball fakes well and has lots of little tricks for getting open and getting his shot (old-man game).

He needs to improve his FT shooting and with his nice shooting stroke there’s every reason to expect that he’ll become a good FT shooter.
