Delon Wright, PG, Utah

SLIDE: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

With excellent size and a good feel for the point guard position, Delon Wright is one of the more overlooked prospects despite being a second-team All-American last season.

Wright is an excellent all-around player who rebounds well for the position and is an excellent passer who uses his height (6’5) to his advantage in seeing over the defense. He’s not explosive athletically, but is very quick and does an excellent job at changing speeds. He has a number of fakes, shifts, and other moves in his arsenal that allow him to be effective in getting to the basket.

Defensively is where he really shines as he uses his quick feet and excellent instincts to his advantage. He averaged over two steals a game as a senior and would immediately be able to hound opposing point guards up and down the court at the next level.

Questions about Wright tend to focus on his shooting, especially off the dribble, as well as his age, as he will be 23 by the time the draft comes around. While legitimate concerns, they should not be enough to keep Wright off the Lakers draft board where he could provide a different feel from the more offensive-minded Jordan Clarkson.
