Kings Pre-Draft Workout: Ben Uzoh 6/22/10 (via kingsflix)


Here is an interview with Uzoh at the Kings pre-draft workout.  He seems like a mature kid, he is 22 years old.

DraftExpress has this to say about him:

HIS SIZE

Another player who will be helped by his impressive measurements is Tulsa’s Ben Uzoh—at 6-2 ¾ without shoes with a 6-9 wingspan, which is the largest of any of the point guard prospects at the camp. Combine that with his fantastic leaping ability and strong overall athletic ability and you have a very impressive prospect from a physical standpoint. Uzoh still has plenty of wrinkles to iron out in his game, but he’s definitely someone NBA teams will be keeping close tabs on. His measurements are similar to that of Antonio Daniels, just better.

HIS ABILITY

One of the most intriguing long-term talents seen at this event, Ben Uzoh did a very good showing off his strengths and weaknesses and prospects, which have been covered in a good amount of depth already on this site. Seeing his terrific quickness and explosiveness in person was definitely a good thing for us, though, as he was one of the most exciting players to watch in terms of his sheer highlight reel potential.

THAT SOUNDS EXCITING

Uzoh is actually more than just an entertainer, as he’s actually a fairly steady player who understands his limitations quite well and appears to be pretty unselfish. Not a great ball-handler in terms of changing directions with the ball or creating his own shot, Uzoh plays in an under control manner, picking his spots well and doing a good job limiting mistakes, even if he’s not what you would call a incredibly naturally talented playmaker. A relatively solid shooter with his feet set, he can still stand to improve his ability to make shots off the dribble. Defensively, Uzoh has outstanding physical tools, standing 6-4 in shoes, with a 6-9 wingspan and excellent athleticism.

HE SOUNDS LIKE HE WILL NEED SOME WORK, BUT HE CAME IN ON A VISIT, SO THE NETS MUST LIKE HIM.  MAY NEED TO SEND HIM TO THE DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE TO START THE SEASON.
OVERALL, SOUND INTRIGUING BUT STILL NOT A NATURAL BACKUP POINT GUARD.  I STILL THINK THEY NEED TO SIGN A VETERAN PURE POINT GUARD.
