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

By Jeff Fox


NBA Draft: PJ Tucker


College: Texas

Class: Junior



Position: SF/PF

Height: 6”5”

Weight: 225bs


Accolades:  Big 12 All-Freshman Team (04), Honorable Mention All-Big 12 – coaches (04), AP Second Team All-American (06), USBWA Second Team All-American (06), All-Big 12 First Team (06), All-Big 12 Player of the Year (06).

Scouting Report: A ferocious, physically intimidating but undersized power forward.

Strengths: Very intense and physical.  Great rebounder and jumper.  Can score easily in the post despite his lack of height.  Great free throw shooter.  Great scorer – has been a big time scorer all 3 years in a big time conference.  Has improved his dribbling and face up ability.

Weaknesses: No outside shot whatsoever – has taken 4 three pointers his whole career, hitting 2 of them.  Definitely too small to play post in the NBA, yet he can’t shoot good enough to play the 3 spot.  Averages more turnovers than assists.  Only played 17 games his sophomore year due to academic ineligibility, so he isn’t as experienced as other juniors.

Projected 2006 Draft Range: Early-Mid second round pick.

Consensus:  Tucker could go down as another in a long line of great NCAA players whose game (or physical size) don’t carry over well to the NBA.  Tucker is expected to return to Texas for his senior season, and if he can develop a three point shot he could stick around a few years in the NBA.  If not, it is off to Europe for him, where he should still make a decent living.
