2013 NBA Draft: Oklahoma City Thunder Selects Alex Abrines with the No. 32 Pick

The Oklahoma City Thunder have selected Spain Shooting Guard Alex Abrines with the No. 32 overall pick in the Second Round.

Draftexpress.com compares his game and physical stature to former Portland Trailblazer Rudy Fernandez. He does most of his scoring via jump shots.

Here is a breakdown from Draftexpress.com on his game.

“By no means an imposing physical specimen by NBA standards, Abrines does the vast majority of his scoring at this stage of his career with his jump shot, as perimeter attempts account for more than 75% of his total shots, the majority of which come from beyond the arc. The 19 year old is a streaky shooter with good range, having made 34% of his catch and shoot jumpers on the year. He takes some difficult, off-balance jumpers on occasion, but is adept at working off screens and shoots the ball with fluid mechanics and a high release point in rhythm when spotting up. Even coming off the bench for small spurts, Abrines doesn’t hesitate to come into a game and immediately start firing away. He possesses great confidence in his scoring ability and will take and make plenty of jumpers with a hand in his face, showing no fear whatsoever regardless of the situation.”
