   2014 Summer League rosters - Indiana

Jake Odum - Odum is one of only two first year players on this team, fresh out of Indiana State and the beneficiary of hometown ties. But he is also here on merit. Odum averaged 13.1 points and 4.6 assists per game, alongside 1.9 turnovers per game, shot 8.6 field goals and 6.7 free throws per game, but made only 22 three pointers per game, and made only 74 in his collegiate career. He is a big point guard at 6'4, but not a fast one, which hinders him defensively along with the shot that hinders him offensively. What he can do is get to the basket and into the paint regularly off of screens, whereby he can kick to the corners, drop it off, and the get the ball to wherever it needs to go. He will take the contact, finish tough runners and high bankers even when smothered by size, and attack the rim at every opportunity. A true point guard with vision, unselfishness, creativity and the ability to get passes through the tightest of angles, Odum has big limitations and never did learn to shoot, but pick and roll play like that is great for certain European leagues. So if he gets any minutes, he'll be hoping the European scouts are watching.
