Pros:
Very good shooter, especially from deep
Decent scorer off the dribble

Moves fairly well off the ball on offense
Adequate defender
Solid motor

Cons:
Struggles to consistently create his own shot

Summary:
Mitchell Ballock is a skilled marksman that can shoot and score the basketball.  He specializes in knocking down three-point shots, and he has a lot of range on his shot.  On the downside, he is undersized to play out on the wing, and he tends to struggle to rebound or defend against more athletic opponents.  Right now, he may be a long shot to be drafted, but his ability to shoot could make him an effective, situational use role player as a shooting specialist in the NBA.
