Can create his own shot and hit shots on the move... A shifty offensive player... Gritty leader who makes up what he lacks in physical gifts with effort and smarts.
“Derrick Low is a clever player. He has quick feet and a very quick handle with the dribble. If given the opportunity he shoots it pretty well when he gets set.”
– Nets Director of Scouting Gregg Polinsky
On today’s workout:
“Today was fun. It was my first workout, was nervous at the beginning but then settled down and got the hang of thing. It was a good experience.”
On his strengths as a player
“Ability to shoot the ball. I think I shoot well from the outside. Players like me can open up the floor for a team like the Nets.”
Is there a player you compare yourself to?
“People tend to say I play like Steve Nash. I’m honored to get that comparison. But I really don’t want to even think about that. Same way Kobe feels about Jordan. I play like myself…I try to do things from time to time like other players but all and all I play like my own person.”

"Derrick Low is one of the most underrated players in the nation. Period. He is really, really, really good. I'm saying he's really good. If he ends up having a career in the NBA like [John] Stockton or [Steve] Nash, it would not shock me. He's that good." -Alabama Coach Mark Gottfried-- from ESPN.com
