Stephen Graham




Stephen is an oversized guard and is extremely athletic. He is a natural shooting guard, but has the ball-handling skills to play the point-guard position. Stephen runs the floor well, and finishes with ease. His defense is a little suspect, which is the only obstacle that can keep him off the court. He saw limited action last season, playing behind NBA first-round draft pick Tony Allen. A possible starting scenario could see Stephen on the court as the wing guard along with Lucas and Bobik on the perimeter, and McFarlin and Joey Graham in the frontcourt.
