"Hey Andre, what's your opinion on the controlled addition of fluoride to a public water supply?"

Andre Dawkins, Duke, Senior, 6'5 215lbs

2013/14 stats: 13.7 mpg, 7.9 ppg, 1.3 rpg, 0.4 apg, 0.5 spg, 0.2 bpg, 1.3 fpg, 0.5 TOpg, 44.4% FG, 42.1% 3PT, 81.1% FT

Dawkins is a shooting specialist, a very good shooting specialist, and little else. And it took until he was a senior to even be consistently aggressive in taking shots.

Off the ball, Dawkins puts in the work to get open. On the ball, he....well, he's never on it, so it's tough to say. Dawkins is very much a specialist - it's all jumpshots, and they're all off of other people's work. There is a floater in the lane every now and then, but it is rare, as are any two point field goals. And foul shots are rarer still. Dawkins passes little, and struggles to create his own shot, let alone for anyone else. On the defensive end, Dawkins has good size and has developed some strength (aided by having some extra pounds of fat that he shouldn't), and chases around off the ball, but is ineffective at keeping anyone in front of him. He is, then, pretty much as one dimensional as can be. It is his mercy then that he is big enough and good enough of a shooter to compete at any level. And at least he plays within the confines of his role.

To be blunt, Dawkins benefits greatly from the name of the program from which he graduated. This is not to say his shot is not NBA calibre - it is. And he is just about big enough, if not overly athletic. But the NBA can afford to be picky, and must be considered highly likely to prioritise slightly lesser shooters with better defensive profiles to become their next three-and-D role players. The door is just about still open for Dawkins, but he might have to go through it the Troy Daniels way.
