Starting for the injury-decimated Hawks tonight. Anyone know anything about this guy?

Scouting report from WalterFootball.com:


2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: John Jenkins


Position:
Shooting Guard

Size: 6-4, 215

School: Vanderbilt, Junior


Strengths:

  • Deadly three-point shooter
  • Catch-and-shoot ability
  • Lightning-quick release
  • Moves well off screens
  • Finding open space to get his shot off
  • Uses shot fakes to keep defenders off balance
  • Squaring up his body to the basket on shots off screens
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Free throw shooting
  • Deceptive athleticism
  • Soild defender
  • Quick hands


    Weaknesses:
  • Attacking the basket
  • Taking defenders one on one off the dribble
  • Creating for teammates
  • Ball-handling could improve
  • Might struggle guarding NBA two-guards due to a lack of quickness

    Summary: Jenkins is one of the deadliest deep shooters in all of college basketball. Any team would love to have a shooter like Jenkins on their roster, but he hasn't shown the full repetoire to warrant being a high pick. Still, I think he is a first-round lock assuming he leaves early, which seems very likely since Vandy will lose their other four starters and be in a re-building mode next season.

    Player Comparison: Daequan Cook. Cook has been known as a three-point specialist in the NBA with about 60 percent of his career field goal attempts coming from behind the three-point line. Jenkins certainly can fill that role in the NBA, but has the potential to be more than just a shooter off the bench if he can develop his all-around game - something Cook has yet to really do.

    Catch and shoot guy with range. Pretty redundant when they've already got Korver and Morrow. For fantasy he's going to be only a 3 point specialist even if he gets minutes. He's probably not going to be on the radar for standard sized leagues unless the Hawks fall totally out of the playoffs.
