SUMMARY

CJ Elleby is coming off a strong freshman campaign where he averaged 14.7 points, 7 rebounds per game and shot 41.4% (53-128) from deep.

 

NBA teams are always looking for shooters on the wing and Elleby could carve out a nice career as a floor spacer, defender and wing rebounder. As a sophomore, I'd like to see him improve on attacking close outs, making plays off the dribble and his decision making.
