Demetri McCamey PG/SG, Illinois 6-3, 205 lbs. Strengths: Big, strong, highly productive point guard with a very nice stroke from the perimeter. Ranks second amongst college prospects in assists per 40 minutes. Plays with great confidence. Shows excellent court vision. Ready to contribute immediately to a NBA team. Needs Work: Lateral quickness is subpar. May struggle defensively. Very ball-dominant point guard who may not be able to get by NBA players as effectively. A bit turnover prone. Conditioning level not ideal.
