NBA ROLE: VERSATILE SMALL FORWARD

 

Robert Covington aka ‘RoCo’ is a solid two-way player in Minnesota; earned a permanent spot in the Show during the 2014-15 season – broke out after being selected #1 overall in the D-League Draft; a rarity in today’s league: Covington’s a 37% 3-pt. shooter who loves working on D* (plays passing lanes well, fights for positioning, gets a lot of steals) & crashing the glass; though Covington can shoot – doesn’t need any time or space to launch a three – he needs to continue developing** more counters off the dribble, finishing with his off hand & using his 6’9 frame to get inside & draw contact/FTs; fills break well in transition; dealt to Wolves (‘18-’19) – can RoCo breakout even further?

 

*1st Team All-Defense in 2018!

**Covington goes through stretches where his 3 just isn’t falling (for whatever reason) – adding a consistent floater, escape dribble-pull-up or turnaround J is an alternative to the long ball
