Rating the Draft’s Point Guards



Point guard is the deepest position in the 2009 NBA Draft with eight players likely being taken in the first round, and that number possibly could jump to as high as 11. Depending on a team’s need, there are a few different directions it can go if it’s looking to draft a point guard. Experience versus potential will likely determine which team takes which point guard based on the direction of their franchise.

1. Ricky Rubio, Spain
Height: 6-3. Weight: 180. Year: 1990
Projected Selection: Top 4 Pick.

A true play-maker with the basketball in his hands… Completely unselfish and looks to pass rather than shoot… Despite being 18 years old, has already played a few years professionally in one of the toughest Euro leagues… If he can adapt to the NBA game by becoming more physical and a better shooter, he could be a special player.

2. Jonny Flynn, Syracuse
Height: 6-0.75. Weight: 195. Year: So.
Projected Selection: 4-13.
He just gets it… Knows when to put a game in his hands and score for his team, but also is a great floor leader and distributor… As shown by his six overtime performance against UConn in the Big East Tournament, his toughness and heart cannot be questioned… Explosive in transition with great leaping ability… Not afraid to attack the rim… Probably the safest of the top point guard prospects.

3.  Brandon Jennings, Italy
Height: 6-1. Weight: 170. Year: 1989
Projected Selection: 4-10.

Learned a big-time lesson and matured in his one year as a pro in Italy when he didn’t see a lot of playing time… Excels in transition because of his great athleticism and is a great creator… Lacks consistency with his jumper and tends to force his shots too often… May need a year or two before he becomes a real contributor.
