This might not have been the type of Showcase Eddie Gill needed to have to make NBA teams pull the trigger on calling him up (although you really never know). Gill looked a little bit too wild in this setting, jumping in the air with no clear destination in mind on more than one occasion, delivering bullet passes to the 2nd row, dribbling into traffic, and making other poor decisions. He’s a smallish (6-0) point guard with average athleticism, solid ball-handling skills and decent scoring tools, showing the ability to knock down shots with range (despite his inconsistent release point) and having the strength to get inside the paint and finish at times. Gill gets his assists mostly on the drive and dish, as he’s a dominant ball-handler who can be extremely turnover prone as he showed here, averaging over 4 per game on the year. He looks very uncomfortable when forced to go left, which not enough teams took advantage of. Defensively, he gets in the passing lanes very well, but lacks some size on this end. When it’s all said and done, he’s a guy that does a lot of things well, but nothing great. Teams might like him because he’s an older guy who has plenty of experience both in the NBA and high-level Europe.

Gill has plenty of experience playing minor league basketball, with both ABA and NBDL stops on his resume along with a couple of NBA seasons with the Indiana Pacers. The 29 year old guard has good quickness, and could become a mentor on the floor for his teammates due to the amount of experience he’s racked up along the way. A solid shooter as well, Gill will be able to create a lot of open looks for his teammates in the D-League. He won’t lead the league in scoring, but he is the type of player who could find himself in the first round on draft night.
