Articles about Deshawn Delaney

July 4, 2015

Delaney is a very athletic wing with good size and length, who was given the opportunity to score at New Mexico last year due to a severe dearth of options, but who didn't really take it. He did score some - 11.7 points per game in 29 minutes, on 49.5% shooting with a 37.2% three point stroke - but he didn't assume the role of go-to guy, despite one being sorely needed, as he just hasn't that mindset or skill set. Delaney's offense suffered from unaggressive periods when his team needed someone to step up, and moments of reckless abandon when going to be the basket. His offensive instincts in the half court are still behind the curve. That said, there are plenty of tools in the shed - the physical profile (athlete, dunker, good length and speed), coupled with a decent three point catch-and-shoot shot and a mid-range pull-up. Although only a decent defender despite his tools, Delaney has the tools of a three-and-D role player at the NBA level with his athletic profile, set shot and ability to disrupt on the perimeter. He does however have to prove he can do the latter two to a higher standard and higher frequency, as others have proven themselves ahead of him.
