CHA 2 Shooting Guard: 6’5, 210 lbs; 11th year, Italy 

NBA Role: versatile wing scorer • Hybrid

Marco Belinelli: a confident, big-shot-takin-two w/ a top-5 pump fake; over the years, Marco’s turned into a viable wing scorer off the bench: aggressive coming off pin downs and curls – moves well without the rock and knows exactly how to get to his sweet spots on the elbow and short corner; underrated playmaker – decent ball-handler who can make things happen outta the PnR – keeps his head up looking for teammates but will strike from the outside if given space; has learned how to play ‘team defense’ but isn’t a stopper by any means; takes (and makes) a lot of difficult threes – can Coach Clifford continue to count on Marco in crunch time?; the ultimate role player in San Antonio, Belinelli is searching for similar success in Charlotte*

*hard to top his 2013-14 season though

Signature Sequence: separation, midrange J off the curl
