At this point, the only thing Selby does consistently is shoot, and he undermines that strength with an inconsistent release point and over-confident shot selection. Selby is not good at making shots around the basket at this stage in his career - which doesn't stop him trying - and his defense can be as wild, exasperating and damaging as his offense when it's similarly unchecked. That said, he is the Jayhawks's best guard option for creating his own shot, and, on his day, the best jumpshooter on the team.

   2011 NBA Draft Diary
2011-06-25

Chad Ford tweets that Josh Selby, the highest profile name remaining theorised at going at the start of the second round, is sliding due to medical concerns. He does not elaborate on what these are. Solomon Alabi slid down the draft for much the same reasons due to suspected hepatitis. Shouldn't think it's hepatitis with Selby.

Picks 49 and 50: Josh Selby finally goes, chosen by a Memphis team who lands a once top rated talent with their late second round pick in a bad draft. He is a question mark for many reasons, including now, seemingly, medical ones. But this is the 49th pick in a bad draft. No one else left has a higher ceiling. Warts and all, it's worth a gamble.

   Sham's unnecessarily great big draft board: Shooting Guards
2011-06-23

Josh Selby - In college, Josh Selby has proven to be little more than an undersized streak shooter. For whatever reason, he can't make a layup right now, and while his small stature would be more beneficial of a point guard, he isn't one. His decision making is pretty poor, perhaps due to inexperience, perhaps due to an innate poor feel for the game - time will tell on that one. Instead, Selby is an out-and-out scorer, specifically a shooter, who can hit off the dribble or off the bounce and create his own shot. In theory, he's a good isolation scorer, and pesky if undersized defender. It appears that he is doing enough of this in workouts to make his way up the draft board, because the whole college thing didn't really work out for him.

Except for his very first game.

   Unsigned guards looking to make mid-season NBA impact
2013-12-10

Josh Selby - Still only 22, Selby went to China to start this season, one of the youngest to ever do so, and averaged 29 points in 3 games for Qingdao before being released. (Chinese teams are fickle like that.) He will receive another NBA chance at some point, though there is work to do before then.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
