   Wildly Unnecessarily Lengthy 2014 NBA Draft Board, Part 1: NCAA Centres

Not the one on the right. Sadly.

Jarred Shaw, Utah State, Senior, 6'10 235lbs

2013/14 stats: 27.2 mpg, 14.1 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 1.1 bpg, 0.9 apg, 0.2 spg, 3.1 fpg, 1.9 TOpg, 48.3% FG, 78.2% FT

Oklahoma State transfer Shaw downgraded in standard of competition for a big upgrade in playing time. As it happens, he probably could have stayed with the Cowboys and played big minutes. Nevertheless, by joining the Aggies as their main big man, Shaw got himself plenty of opportunity, particularly on the offensive end.

The offensive end is his better end. Decently sized but not especially long, fast or strong, Shaw scores his points through a solid contingent of offensive skills. He utilises a mid range jumpshot well and is an option in pick and pop plays, an ability further manifested in his strong free throw shooting numbers. He also can throw a few moves in the post - with the ability to palm the ball, Shaw can throw an up and under to get open or take the turnaround jumpshot, with decent touch around the basket. He very much favours the right hand, however, and is less effective in the post when up against long and athletic defenders, over whom he prefers to take the jumpshot. He also avoids contact in general, rarely getting to the foul line and without three point range, leaving himself as being one of the most inefficient 48% shooters around. Nevertheless, with more than one offensive skill, Shaw's finesse-based offensive game has its uses. He could probably stand to add range to it pretty quickly.

On the defensive end, things are less certain. Somewhat flat footed, Shaw does not like to defend the perimeter on switches or chase down shooters, much preferring to stay in the paint. In the paint, he has good awareness of when to rotate as a weak side shot blocking, picking up a few in this way without the length or leap of many of the shotblockers above him on this list. But in hnot being all that bulky, Shaw's man to man post defense is something very attackable, and his foul rates speak to his limitations on that end.

A slight concern is Shaw's off-court habits, jailed for 10 days earlier this year for possession of a controlled substance; specifically, for having more marijuana than police believed was for personal use. He is a talented player, but only Belgian league sort of standard, so he cannot afford any more black marks against his name. The previous McGary blurb speaks I feel to the slightly overblown nature of the problem here, yet it is a perception issue more than anything, and perception is what will get him employed. So this pretty much cannot happen again.
