2013 NBA Draft Prospect Profile: Carrick Felix, Shooting Guard, Arizona State
Name: Carrick Felix
Position: Shooting Guard
School/Country: Arizona State
Latest Stats: 14.6 ppg, 8.1 rpg, 1.6 apg, 1.4 spg, 1.1 bpg
Arizona State shooting guard Carrick Felix has blossomed out of nowhere. Felix has great size for his position, measuring in at 6-foot-6 and after averaging 14.6 points per game this past season, he has the potential to hear his name called within the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft. Felix shot an efficient 50% from the field this past season, but his overall production alongside star point guard Jahii Carson is what warranted his added hype.
Despite being labeled as a shooting guard, Felix is very active around the glass, having grabbed on average, 8.1 rebounds per game this past season. Felix is on the fence in this year’s draft class, but he will have the opportunity to hear his name called late in the second round.
Strengths: Felix has incredible size at 6-foot-6 and his growth as a player over the past few years has put him on the radar of a number of NBA scouts. Felix can score at an efficient rate (50.0%) and he can rebound particularly well for someone of his size. Felix greatest strength though is the simple fact that he may just now be hitting his stride and potential on the basketball court.
Weaknesses: Felix needs to become more of an outside shooter. He shot 37.4% from three this past season, but his shot selection will be limited once he moves forward to the NBA. Felix needs to be able to prove his worth, which will include scoring efficiently and attacking the glass. He had a good season at Arizona State, but will his emerging talents translate to the NBA level?
