He has one more year of college, I think personally, he needs to work harder on that shot, more consistency.
Ronda has taken years to figure out how to shoot was my first thought :)
Love Craft but no way he plays in the NBA...doesn't shoot well enough and more important his ball handling skills for that level is severely lacking...he goes to medical school and becomes a bigger success...
First of all, Craft ain't no Rondo. Rondo is not only one of the best defensive PG's in the league, he's also the best rebounding and one of the top 3 distributing PG's as well.
Craft does have a chance of finding a home in the league because he defends his position better than anyone in college basketball but he's gotta turn into at least a mild threat as a shooter/scorer to stick on that level. Not many 6'2" guys in the league anymore at any position and you wouldn't want someone as outstanding a defensive player as he is defending PG's who aren't necessarily known for scoring. That means he will have to be able to contribute in other areas. Ala Kirk Hinrich
His defensive ability will get him a look but the fact that he does nothing else other than defend will keep him from finding a place in the NBA. He's been here for 2 and 1/2 years and his offense hasnt improved whatsoever. In fact, you can argue that it has gotten worse.

Eric Snow couldnt shoot either...
Very good point and Craft would bring virtually the exact same skill set as Snow to the NBA.
Luv Craft. He is one of the best point guards in college ball(when Matta lets him play pg). As for NBA, he will be a great DOCTOR.
i agree but i think craft is better ball handler and better defender....he has always reminded me of a young kid....nock on kid was shooting coming out but got scorers the ball where they can score. at the very least he would be a back up point playing 10-20 a game give the star point a blow and not turn the ball over he will play and i think be successiful for alot of years
The difference being that Kidd is 6'4''
Unfortunately craft will not be an NBA player. I would be surprised if he got drafted. I wish the kid luck and I would love to see him "Bruce Bowen" it to a solid career but I'm not holding my breath.
Undrafted free agent. He'll provide good bench support as long as he is able to defend, distribute, and protect the ball. He could even find a niche in late game-defending situations. If he wants to, 80% chance he plays in the NBA.
We may have lost the battle......but not the war.
Craft will be lucky to get in the D-league... He will likely play overseas. He couldn't carry Scoonie Penn's book bag and he was an overseas player. I like his heart but he doesn't shoot well enough and doesn't have the handles to break his man down off the dribble whenever he wants. If you can't shoot, you better be able to drive and his 1v1 game is not nice enough yet.
I always thought Aaron Craft could fit the Eric Snow mold.
