After sitting out the entire 2007-2008 season, Ronald Steele has declared for the 2008 NBA Draft, but he has not yet hired an agent.
Ronald was at his best in the 2005-06 season, averaging 14.3 PPG, 4.3 APG, 3.7 RPG, and 1.5 SPG. Steele also shot a outstanding 89.7 percent from the free throw line and 41.4 percent from long range.
In the 2006-07 season, he averaged 8.6 PPG, 4 APG, 1.7 RPG, and 0.5 SPG. Along with his core numbers, Steele's free throw dropped slightly to 87.5 percent; still pretty good.
In his time at Alabama, Ron has shown the ability to effectively penetrate to the basket and make his teammates around him better.
Ronald Steele is a middle-class Rajon Rondo with greater scoring skills.
Several teams that could use the services of Ronald Steele are:
Golden State Warriors
San Antonio Spurs
I believe the Denver Nuggets are the best possible suitors for Steele.
Here are the reasons why:
The Nuggets current PG situation
Chucky Atkins missed over 50 games this past season with a hernia injury and seems to be finding new ways to get injured. He only played in 24 games during the regular season and only three minutes during the Nuggets-Lakers series.
Anthony Carter has shown that he is incapable of sinking timely shots and is in the same boat as the rest of the Nuggets team: defensively unarmed. Only eight points scored on 28.5 percent FG shooting in the series can't be good either. Carter will also become a free agent in the offseason.
Taurean Green, who? Aside from being the point guard of the Florida Gators during their historic back-to-back National Championship run, Green hasn't lived up to the expectations of critics, and he was the Nuggets major move at the trade deadline.
