14 NBA Draft: Sixers trade Russ Smith for Pierre Jackson

admin Last updated on: February 17, 2024

Strengths: Small but explosive PG with leadership and a winning mentality … Makes up for lack of size with great heart and determination … Very good scorer showing the ability to knock down shots out to 3 point range … An explosive scorer … Legitimate PG skills showing leadership and the ability to run a team, and has given the Baylor program stability during his two years there … Shows good pick and roll skills, adding to his intrigue … Also excels in ISO situations, showing the ability to create shots for himself by drawing defenders off balance and getting good elevation to get shots off … Utilizes crossovers, step backs and fadaways to create space for himself

Weaknesses: His most glaring weakness is his lack of size. At 5’10 he’s a defensive liability and will have to work twice as hard to get open looks, and get passes off … Some teams just won’t consider small point guards due to the liabilities associated with having them on the floor … Unlike a player Pierre often gets compared to, Nate Robinson, who is a ball hawk, Jackson doesn’t show the same tenacity or passion on the defensive end of the floor … Will be a target for post ups from bigger point guards
