NBA ROLE: VERSATILE WING

 

Kansas State’s Rodney McGruder finally made the Show after winning one of Miami’s final roster spots in 2016; a disciplined wing with a solid outside game, McGruder did work on every level before entering league – from Manhattan* to Sioux Falls (MIA’s D-League affiliate) to Summer League to South Beach; undersized, works very hard on defense (normally checks bigger 2s & 3s), contributes winning plays; solid shot creator, takes advantage of his scoring profile to draw in defenders: good option spotting up; able to hit floaters & Js off a couple dribbles; adds perimeter depth – McGruder’s found minutes by spacing the floor & defending his matchup – can hold his own on both ends

 

*KS, home of the Wildcats!
