Very pure shooter…Great range…Clutch…Average athleticism…Works hard…Incredible free throw shooter…Exceptional endurance…Size is a disadvantage…Not good enough ball handler/passer to play the point…Age could be an issue.
“Jaycee Carroll, I wouldn’t say was the biggest surprise of the workout because we knew that he could shoot the ball. I think the thing that was a little surprising is that he’s a deceptively good athlete. When you say athlete that’s all relative, but I think from what he’s been cast to be to what he is, he leans more on having more athleticism in certain areas than we realized before. With the way he shoots the basketball not only the Nets but also a number of teams have to look at him if it’s a need they have to address.” —Nets Director of Scouting Gregg Polinsky
On today’s workout
“I felt like it went pretty well. I really enjoyed being here today and thought we had a great group of guys in to play against. It was competitive and we were able to get some good games going. I loved it, felt like I had a good workout and am excited.”
On what he did well during the workout
“Personally I thought I worked real hard defensively. That is something I’ve been really trying to improve on, so defensively I felt like I was able to body people and keep people in front of me. On the shooting stuff I knocked down a lot of shots today.”
On how he sees himself fitting in with the Nets
“That’s a good question. I can see myself coming in and being a guy that spots up and knocks down some open three pointers. I could spread the court so there are driving lanes for some of the guys that are drivers to finish real strong. I see myself developing into a nice combo guard who can distribute the ball and get other guys open at the same time.”
