Texas guard Daniel Gibson said he will leave the Longhorns after two seasons to enter the NBA draft. Gibson had already submitted his name for the draft but had not signed with an agent. Sunday is the last day for him to withdraw.[details]
Strengths: Gibson is one of the most lethal catch-and-shoot threats in this draft, thanks to his quick release and the excellent lift he gets on his jump-shot. He's a streak scorer. Gibson has very good quickness, which translates into being a very good perimeter defender, capable of getting into the passing lanes. A McDonald's All-American just two years ago, Gibson still has upside to improve.
Weaknesses: Gibson will probably have to play at least a little point guard to stick in the NBA, but has looked completely out of his element when asked to do so at the college level. His ball-handling is sub-par and his court vision is very average. He doesn't take the ball to the basket nearly enough, and has problems finishing due to his lack of strength. He lacks aggressiveness and is prone to turning it off or on unpredictably.
