Profile:

CHI Guard: 6’0, 201 lbs; 5th year, Murray State 

NBA Role: offensive-minded combo guard • UnderDOG

6’0 pointshooting guard Isaiah Canaan loves shooting deep threes – in fact, it may be his greatest skill; Canaan’s far from Steph Curry (GS) beyond the arc but he takes similar heat check threes, regardless of the situation; volume scorer (gets hot fast) whose value will surge once he learns how to initiate contact driving to the hole; needs to perfect ‘slice-thru’ pocket passes (or lobs) when running point; good ball-handler, improving decision-maker; primarily plays off-guard under Fred Hoiberg – used as an ‘instant offense’, spot-up guy in limited doses – whenever necessary, Isaiah comes in, plays off ball (usually alongside of one the 3 Alphas) & bombs triples; delegated to spot minutes in wake of CHI’s guard logjam – revolving door; mid-major success story
