NBA Draft | NBA Mock Draft | 2006 Draft Profiles | Message Board

By Shawn Siegel


NBA Draft: Marcus Vinicius


Team: Sao Carlos

Birth Year: 1984


Position: SF/PF

Height: 69

Weight: 230 lbs

Scouting Report: Gifted offensive player who might need a year or two.

Strengths: Despite size of a power forward, can run the wings and handle like an off-guard.  Has shown a willingness to work and learn, and is improving his strength and intelligence monthly.  Tough to guard on offense, because he can do a little of everything: shoot, dribble, drive, pass, and post up.  He'd be considered a 5-tool offensive player. 

Weaknesses: Defense is his biggest shortcoming, and some question his desire to do the dirty work (screen, box out, etc) when he doesnt have the ball in his hands.  Despite improving strength, isnt really a banger and his rebounding should be better as well.

Projected 2006 Draft Range: Late first to early second round.

Consensus:  Another high risk/reward guy at the end of the 1st round.  His ability to run and handle the ball makes him similar to the Suns' Diaw.  Could play a similar point-forward function on a team that knows how to utilize his skills.  Could be one of this draft's surprise talents.
