Isaiah Canaan

The leader and best player of an extremely fun Murray State team, Canaan is mostly a shooter. And he's an explosive one. The 37% three point percentage belies him somewhat, as Canaan can take over games purely from deep, and often has done. He can create these looks off the dribble, hit them off the catch-and-shoot, has a high quality pull-up jumper, and shoots so quickly that he still gets them off despite his lack of size. He does, however, take a few too many. Such is the side effect of being an NBA talent in a mid-major conference. And at 6'0, he doesn't have much in the way of point guard skills, save for a solid handle. Nevertheless, Houston has James Harden to run the offense.

Being constantly on the attack does lead to some mistakes, but a very acceptable number of them, and Canaan has shone as one of the best players in the D­-League so far. Recalled this week to cover the injured Patrick Beverley, Canaan has an opportunity to make it translate.
