Guillermo Diaz Profile
Guillermo Diaz grew up in Puerto Rico playing volleyball and it carried over to the basketball court as the 6-foot-2 guard offers tremendous hops, speed and scoring ability to the team that selects him on June 28th. After a breakout sophomore season in which he electrified crowds by scoring 18.6 points and 4.3 rebounds, Diaz underwent knee surgery. He still bounced back from it, scoring 17.2 points for the Hurricanes as a junior, earning Second Team All-ACC honors.
Guillermo Diaz Strengths
With a 42-inch vertical leap, Diaz is an exceptional athlete who can soar to the rack. He's got a good stroke that extends out to three-point range (36.4% from trifecta as a junior). Very competitive and aggressive -- he doesn't shy away from contact. Has good speed and quickness to go with a deadly first step and some nice handles. Definitely has a scoring mentality and can put up points in bunches.
Guillermo Diaz Weaknesses
What's his position? Diaz is a shooting guard trapped in a point guard's body. Seemed to lose some of his explosiveness after arthroscopic knee surgery after his sophomore season. Not a very good passer and not likely to be able to play point guard in the pros -- certainly not right away. He just doesn't have that kind of court vision and can play out of control at times. Defense is suspect.
Guillermo Diaz on the Houston Rockets?
Guillermo Diaz at #8 just is not going to happen. While a scorer with range is one of the many Rocket needs, they have a similar "smaller, athletic two" in Luther Head.
