2013 NBA Draft Prospect Profile: Abdul Gaddy, Point Guard, Washington

Joe Nicholson-USA Today Sports

Name: Abdul Gaddy

Age: 21

Height: 6-foot-3

Position: Point Guard

School/Country: Washington

Latest Stats: 10.9 ppg, 4.6 apg, 3.2 rpg, 1.0 spg

 

After four seasons at Washington, senior point guard Abdul Gaddy is moving on to the professional ranks as an NBA Draft hopeful. At 6-foot-3, Gaddy has good size for the point guard position and although he never reached a level of stardom — he’s a basketball player. Gaddy has continued to improve throughout his collegiate career and he has a work ethic that is unmatched.

Gaddy averaged just under 11 points per game this past season, the first time in which he has reached double-figures in his career. Gaddy’s professional career is likely heading overseas however, as he is not expected to hear his name called on draft night.

 

Strengths: Gaddy has a strong work ethic and he’s become an improving guard throughout his collegiate career. At 6-foot-3, he has good size for the point guard position and he has shown great court awareness and high basketball IQ in the past.

 

Weaknesses: Gaddy is not a true, dominant point guard and in fact, he shared the position for most of his collegiate career. Gaddy can be turnover prone at times and he needs to improve on his three point and outside shooting.

 

Draft Projection: Undrafted
