Scouting Report on Jerryd Baylessby Jerry Meyer - 05/04/2006
A premier athlete and talent, Bayless can score from the perimeter as well as any player on the circuit. Always able to create a shot with his high elevating pull up jumper, Bayless is particularly dangerous coming off the high ball screen where he is a threat to score off the dribble from 23-feet and in. He has the potential to be an outstanding defender, but does not always give defending and rebounding top priority. Possesses definite NBA upside.
