Quincy Pondexter
Team: Washington HuskiesHeight: 6-6 Born: 3/10/1988
Class-Eligibility: Sr-SrWeight: 215 Birthplace: Fresno, CA


Scouting Report

Pondexter wouldn't have had much of a shot at an NBA future had he left Washington after his junior season, but a stellar senior campaign has made him a likely first-round pick. A key part to a balanced offensive team each of his first three seasons, Pondexter was more of a focal point in 2009-10. He finished third in the Pac-10 with 19.3 points per game after averaging 12.1 in 2008-09, lifted his field-goal percentage from 51.1 to 52.8 despite getting much more attention from opposing defenses, and boosted his free-throw percentage from a mediocre 74.2 to 82.7 - the fourth-best mark in the conference and highest among players taller than 6-foot-1. He also increased his range, making 18 of 51 3-point attempts (35.3 percent) after hitting only 3 of 14 (21.4) as a junior. This upward trend bodes well for Pondexter at the next level, and if he doesn't go late in the first round, he'll be a steal early in the second. Still, it may not be an entirely smooth transition for the Fresno, Calif., product. Pondexter is a remarkable athlete, but not an exceptionally skilled basketball player. He can be inconsistent with his jump shot and he doesn't create well with the ball. He's also somewhat undersized for an NBA forward. However, he's a very good rebounder for his height, having averaged 7.4 boards last season thanks to his athleticism and 7-foot wingspan. His rebounding is also indicative of his strong instincts around the basket and a defensive intensity some scouts think is the most impressive aspect of Pondexter's game. Pondexter's performance slipped somewhat in the NCAA tournament, but his draft stock probably won't be dramatically affected by the postseason drop-off, especially considering he led the No. 11 seed Huskies into the round of 16.
