BOS Guard: 6’1, 201 lbs; 2nd year, Notre Dame

NBA Role: (raw) explosive lead guard 

Notre Dame’s Demetrius Jackson: an athletic guard w/ burst in the open court; a member of Brad Stevens’s diminutive, yet explosive guard core*, DJ is a more consistent J away from pushing for minutes; only 6’1 but Jackson has w/ incredible bounce; competes very hard, doesn’t give up too much leverage defensively; improving creator – relies on speed/fast cuts to penetrate and find open teammates; likes to score off the dribble, should focus on drawing fouls, pushing action w/o losing control; spent time between the D-League & “majors” as a rook – BOS employs a surplus of guards! – DJ’s role could increase if there’s injuries or Coach Stevens gets wacky w/ lineups
