PHXForward: 6’7, 225 lbs; 11th year, Boston College

NBA Role: small ball four man • Salty DOG

Though Jared Dudley’s far from a Greek god, he’s a highly intelligent, small ball power forward; there’s a reason why Duds continues playing prominent roles: he executes the gameplan and usually carries out his coach’s instructions; scores almost exclusively (moves well without the rock, sneaks in a few easy lay-ups and short Js here and there) via the three ball and if it connects, he’ll reach one hand down low to celebrate; no longer a clamp-up perimeter defender, Dudley has adjusted to using his IQ to beat guys to spots, predict schemes, etc.; in & out of Coach Earl Watson’s rotation as PHX works towards developing the young guys; future coach, analyst or GM once his playing career comes to a halt – if not, steak dinner & all that jazz
