Glen Rice Jr. was originally thrown off the Georgia Tech team following multiple off-the-court issues and violations.
Rice entered the D-League draft, where he was selected by the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and went on to win a title. He averaged 18 points, eight boards and 2.5 assists on 43 percent shooting from downtown in 25 starts before averaging 29 points, 11.5 boards and four assists in the finals.
And now, after being humbled by a stint in the D-League, it appears as if Rice is ready for the NBA.
At 6'6", Rice is a player capable of spending time at either wing position, and he is an all-around fantastic offensive player.
As shown in the video, Rice has a great vertical (measured at 40.5") and has the ability to put his athleticism to use for some ridiculous, high-flying dunks.
Additionally, he has great range and can spot up from downtown or hit the mid-range shot. Rice knocked down 39 percent of his three-point attempts in the D-League, and his great range complements his finishing ability nicely. Rice is not expected to be an isolation scorer, but he is a talented offensive weapon nevertheless.
On the other hand, he has been criticized for his defense. If he puts in more effort defensively, works on staying in front of his man and proves that he can have a high motor on both ends of the court, Rice could be a great player in the NBA. Perhaps not a star, but in the best-case scenario he could certainly be a solid starter at the professional level.
