...competing with Grant as well as the full time point guards trying out for the team.
Passing is the strongest part of Grant's game, and his ball handling is pretty good. His scoring, both inside and outside, is wildly inconsistent. We have seen that he is capable of being a scorer; but partly because he isn't as assertive as he needs to be and partly because his shooting fundamentals are wanting, he doesn't do it game in and game out.
Unless he addresses the scoring inconsistency, I like him him more as a point guard than as a wing. Maybe the selection committee saw him as a point, too... at Atkins' expense.
