Alumni Profile: Rudy Gay

ESPN Power Ranking: 20th

Team: Memphis Grizzlies

Position: Small Forward

Overview: Rudy is a highflying and incredibly gifted athlete. He excels in the open court and can finish a play with the best in the NBA. He ranks 12th in field goals attempted, 15th in field goals made, 17th in steals, 22nd in three-pointers attempted, and 31st in three-pointers made. While he played on a horrible team last year, he proved that he belongs among the elite NBA players. He is a combination of a Stacey Augmon and a Kevin Durant. He needs to limit his turnovers (2.35), should be a better blocker (1 a game) and hit the boards more (6.2). He’s improved in shooting, rebounding, assists, and defense from his rookie year and looks primed to have a breakout year.
