This will be the fifth summer that Gonzaga guard Gray has tried to make the NBA, and although he was able to get one training camp contract from the Washington Wizards in 2012, he has yet to make a regular season roster. Gray has spent the last three years of his career in France, and last season averaged 16.8 points and 3.1 rebounds in French league games with Dijon. Included in that was 42% three point shooting on more than seven attempts per game, as well as a 40% three point shooting stroke in 16 Eurocup contests. This is not an outlier; Gray is always a good jump shooter, from mid-range and out, off the catch and off the bounce. Gray also makes good reads on defense, anticipates well and shows a decent effort level on this end. He would be a very projectable three-and-D wing role player were it not for a lack of physical tools. With below average size for the NBA shooting guard position and without the great length or athleticism to make up for it, Gray has entirely the right skill set for the job, but not quite the optimum size. If he can shoot it well enough, this may not matter.

Steven Gray

Gray spent last year with Roanne in France, functioning almost exclusively as a shooter with occasional playmaking responsibilities. He averaged 9.2 points and 1.9 assists per game, taking a three every five minutes, and making 46% of them. Offensively, he attempted little else - he only shot two free throws in January, February and March combined. Defensively, he does enough, despite fairly average size and athleticism. It's perhaps possible that Gray's offensive efficiency could get him into the NBA in a shooter's role, but it's surely much more possible that he can upgrade to bigger, richer European gigs.

Senior guard Steven Gray got out to a blisteringly hot start to the season, then cooled down immensely, and now is averaging only about the same as he did as a junior, except now on only 41% shooting. Gray is a good sized, decently athletic guard, with a good jumpshot and some good defensive abilities, but he can't dribble. This wasn't a problem when he had Matt Bouldin next to him, but with Bouldin graduated and going to Greece, and Demetri Goodson continuing to offer nothing at point guard, Gray suddenly had to become a primary playmaker, ball handler and creator. And with his lack of handles, he just can't do that. Gray's a good passer of the ball, yet without the ability to dribble through much traffic, such a passing skill is inevitably underutilised.
