Suns Draft Central

Guard | 6’-5” | 214 lbs. | Indiana

Once considered a project, Victor Oladipo continually refined his game over three years in Bloomington, and he still possesses the raw athleticism that could make him a star at the next level. He has the size, speed, toughness and awareness to become an elite NBA defender, as evidenced by his tendency to shut down opponents that he guarded while at Indiana. This past season he also improved offensively, and he scored a career-best 13.6 points per game. Oladipo was aided by an improved outside shot, as he shot 24 percentage points better from three compared to the previous season. Also, he nearly shot 60 percent from the field, proving that he was taking smart shots.

“Oladipo is all about motor on defense. He might be a better version of the Grizzlies' Tony Allen. His motor runs as hot as any player in the draft. He goes 100 mph all the time, is fearless in the paint, isn't afraid to do the dirty work and will sacrifice his body to get a steal or a rebound. When his shot isn't falling, Oladipo finds other ways to get involved. He has a real nose for the ball and always seems to be in the right place at the right time.”

- Chad Ford, ESPN.com

"I think I could fit in real well (with the Suns). It’s an up-tempo program. They like to get up and down the floor and they like to get a lot of points and play defense at a high level. I feel like I can do that at a high level, and I think I could be a nice fit. But, again, I don’t know how the wheels are going to turn or the way the dice are going to roll."
