Ron Baker
PG/SG, 6’4, 220lbs, 24 years old, 1 year of experience

Had his moments as a rookie, especially defensively, where he gave it a go. He was feisty and aggressive on opposing point guards, battling away even when overmatched for size and speed. Unfortunately, Baker will always be overmatched in this way. Much as he tries, he can only really make much impact on fellow bench (or deep bench) point guards. And offensively, Baker offers little, never a point guard by trade and without NBA explosion (and, at least thus far, NBA range). It’s fun to watch him try, but if the results are simply only slightly inconveniencing the Jose Calderon and Tim Frazier types, it is hard to project much of an NBA future for Baker.

Player Plan: Entering free agency, and given that qualifying offers must be guaranteed these days, he is probably entering unrestricted free agency, having not done much to show he is an NBA player besides giving maximum effort.
