Scouting Report -- Nate Robinson
Position: Point Guard
Declared after: Junior Year
Birthdate: May 31, 1984
Birthplace: Seattle, Washington
Pros: You have to like a player that is 5-9 and dunks regularly on the break. Plus Chuck Swirsky is actively campaigning Raptors brass to bring this little speedster to Toronto. Robinson has improved every year during his college career and should be able to contribute off the bench right away in the NBA. To go along with his speed he doesn't have a confidence problem and will get after loose balls. His passing ability is getting better and he can hit the outside shot. What's not to like?
Cons: The NBA isn't exactly filled with 5-9 (or 5-7 which he is reportedly closer to) success stories, but Robinson may have enough talent to beat the odds. He also has been known to be inconsistent at times. Can get caught up with trying to do things quicker than he should.
