NBA Comparisons:

Optimistic Outlook: Lindsey Hunter
Pessimistic Outlook: Rickey Moore

Strengths: Excellent ball handling skills and great playmaker. A pure point guard who is always looking to get his teammates involved. Plays in control and has a solid basketball IQ. Assist to turnover ratio was a magnificent 3 to 1 in his junior season. Great defensive player with extremely long arms. He has a ridiculous 6-10 wingspan which helps him get a lot of steals. Decently quick player that loves to drive through the lane and dish the ball off or finish strong.

Weaknesses: Rashad Wright is a very inconsistent scorer. Wasn't much of a scorer until this year because he was asked to do so and even then his playmaking took a dive. Horrible shooter from outside and from the free throw line. His shooting from the arc has improved, but he still needs to work on his consistency.

-------------------------
One of the SEC’s — and, in turn, the nation’s — best point guards. It can be argued that Wright has been the program’s most indispensible player for three years running. His prodigious amount of playing time would certainly attest to such status.

2003-04 Season
• Team co-captain.
• Selected SEC Defensive Player of the Year by the league’s 12 coaches. Also picked to their All-SEC second team.
• The best, most accomplished playmaker in UGA basketball history, as his new assists record proves.
• Set the school’s career assist mark Feb. 7 against Auburn on a Jonas Hayes jumper with 7:08 remaining.
• Needed five assists on Feb. 4 vs. Ole Miss to break the record of 466 but settled instead for a career-best six 3-pointers and a game-high 21 points.
• In the regular-season finale vs. Vandy, he became the 33rd player in UGA history to score 1,000 career points.
• Recognized by the SEC twice in the week of Jan. 19-25: Player of the Week and also as a member of the league’s “Good Works” team. Won the former award for his big role in Georgia’s win Jan. 17 at Kentucky.
• Leads the SEC in this unpublished stat: minutes per game. His 37.0 mpg is ahead of teammate Damien Wilkins.
• Missed the Vanderbilt game Feb. 11 with a sprained left ankle, and the Bulldogs scored just 39 points in his absence.
• Set several career offensive highs in win over Florida Atlantic, including points, FGs made and 3FGs attempted.
• Made the game-winning shot with 15 seconds left against South Alabama; it was his only field goal of the game.
• His 18 free-throw attempts against Kentucky were the most by a Bulldog in 14 seasons.

59. Indiana: Rashad Wright, PG, Georgia

Wright is a solid floor general who doesn't really shoot it well, but gets by on hustle, conditioning and strong defense. It's interesting that he was the lone Bulldog drafted off a team that also included seniors Damien Wilkins, Chris Daniels and Jonas Hayes.

I think Wright could be a ok player, as long as he plays good defense, hits shots, and runs the offense well.

This part sounds good:

Sounds like we've gotten a better version of Jamison Brewer.

I hope he makes the Pacers' squad. I do not want Rashad traded. I think he can and will make a big impact, much bigger than Jamison ever would have, this coming season.
