Jared McCain

One of the focal point of Duke's offensive attack, Jared McCain has shown his value in a big way in his freshman season for the Blue Devils. The team's third offensive option behind Kyle Filipowski and Jeremy Roach, McCain makes his presence known as a polished off-ball scorer with a silky smooth shot from outside the arc.

After being viewed as a player likely to end up on an NBA team as an undrafted player before the college basketball season started, Jared has quickly improved his reputation and climbed up draft boards. Shooting 41.8% from distance on the season, McCain is showing he has what it takes to be successful at the next level shooting the ball.

The quick guard can score in bunches and heat up quickly. On February 17, he set a career high with 35 points and eight made three-pointers to help Duke to a win over Florida State. It is outings like this one that show what kind of impact he can have at the next level with even more spacing to get his shot off.

The Spurs could use a reliable shooter like Jared to improve their three-point efforts. Taking a prospect from a school with as strong a reputation for producing elite pro players as Duke would have to be a good option.
