Draft Notes

Roach is a true lead guard with advanced play-making skills. He plays with his head up, has great penetration ability and excels at finding his teammates. He’s not the biggest or most powerful player around but he’s got an advanced skill level and more than enough athleticism to get by.

  • Has great ball-handling and penetration ability.
  • A competitor and leader who has all the intangibles you want in a point guard
  • Has an advanced understanding of the game and a great feel for operating the offense
  • Scores well from mid range and in the lane, using floaters and pull-up jumpers
  • A creative finisher who can put it in with either hand
  • Has a solid frame which will be able to add strength
  • A committed defender who can get under the opponents skin and impact the game on the defensive end
  • Doesn’t project as an elite athlete by NBA standards
  • Has work to do on his outside shot, to become more accurate and consistent
