Articles about Seth Tarver

October 6, 2010

Tarver has a similar skill set to [Dwight] Lewis; he comes to the Blazers fresh from winning the Pac-10 defensive player of the year award, leading the conference with 2.2 steals per game. (Actually, there was a stop-gap in between; after graduating Oregon State in the spring, Tarver played in a minor league called the NABL in the summer time, joining a team called the Portland Showtime. The Showtime also landed Portland State graduate Dominic Waters, who went to summer league with the Jazz, and who has since tried out for/signed with four more teams. Busy few months for Dominic Waters.) Tarver's offense is what holds him back; he scored 10.2 points per game, and got them on an efficient 48% from the field, but at 6'5, he has no outside shot at all. He can finish in the open court and make some mid-range shots, but he is not as big, athletic, quick or versatile as someone like Ronnie Brewer.
