10 out of 22 combo guards; 244 or 180 overall out of 449


The 244 is the composite ranking overall; the 180 is the 247Sports ranking.

I've said from the get-go, after reviewing tapes of Anthony, that I think he is underrated, in part because he's playing against so-so competition, in part because his team (besides him) is not talented, in part because he lacks the elite hops and quickness that scouts tends to notice more in wings and guards, and in part because some of his best skills are least likely to be noticed in all-star games: His selfless play, poise and court awareness.

I don't expect him to be the next Brogdon, but I do expect a well rounded skill set that will be a nice compliment to our other players, someone with the strength, balance and footwork to be a bruising and effective defender and someone who can receive the ball in the high post and be a triple threat: shoot, pass or penetrate and pull up, and someone versatile enough to defend multiple positions and to serve as a mover or a blocker on offense.
