EAST LANSING, Mich. - Shannon Brown will keep his name in the NBA draft and skip his senior season at Michigan State, the shooting guard said...[details]
Strengths: Maurice Ager has the entire package of a prototypical NBA wing, except possibly another inch or two. Ager is an excellent athlete with solid quickness, an excellent first step and terrific leaping ability. He is long-armed and very well built. Offensively, Ager does most of his damage in transition or from behind the arc. He will do some damage inside the arc mostly thanks to his strength and athleticism. As a defender, Ager has nice potential but has yet to put everything together.
Weaknesses: Ager can be a bit mechanical on the offensive end. His handle (particularly his left hand) and in-between game need work as he's not a good enough threat off the dribble in the half-court. He has a tendency to fade mentally and has always carried a label that ranges from inconsistent to soft. He's a very quiet player both on and off the court and did not provide Michigan State with the type of senior leadership you would hope a player of his stature would. As a passer, Ager is average at best, particularly when he's on the move.
