Draft Notes

Tyrell Terry is the most electric 3pt shooter in the draft. The freshman from Stanford can let it fly with the best of them, with deep range, a pure release and really crafty ability to find his shot. I’m not saying he’s Steph Curry but he plays like Steph Curry.

Strengths

Terry is a pure shooter with an effortless shot. He’s got as much deep shooting range as anyone in the draft class and he has an outsized confidence that comes with all great shooter.

Terry is great at loosing his man, using quick change of direction

One thing to love about his game is he always runs to the 3pt line with a purpose, like the way Reggie Miller used to do, or the way Steph and Klay do. He does this coming off of screens, showing great off-ball movement and he also does it with the ball in his hands, pulling up on the fast break from behind the arc and letting it go.

He moves on the court like a pro and seems to think the game at a high level on both ends of the floor. He’s got a good feel for running the pick and roll and making the read. And you see him whip some nice one handed live dribble passes.

Although he’s slight of frame he’s not afraid to take it to the basket and has perfected up and under layups and floaters, as part of his crafty below the rim game.

Weaknesses

Terry is a bit undersized, even for the point guard position. He’s thin and light and could be a liability on defense early in his career.

Although he’s quick in change of direction his overall burst, bounce and open court speed are subpar. He’s mainly a below the rim player and one who relies on skill and savvy more than power and speed.
