Scouting Report on Mark McLaughlinby Jerry Meyer - 08/21/2007
A wiry athlete, McLaughlin has a crafty game to go along with his impressive length for the shooting gaurd position. McLaughlin is at his best in the midrange where he shoots the ball well off the dribble and can distribute with the pass. He needs to get stronger but uses his length effectively on the defensive end.
