Scouting Oscar Bellfield

Tommy Dee

I got a good glimpse of Bellfield at Portsmouth and watched all 3 of his games. My notes on him weren’t filled with highlights or standout plays per se. He only tallied 9 assists in 3 games and I had him for 5 turnovers. His team had talent with Yancy Gates and one of the real standouts of the week JaMychal Green. I had him as the 6th best PG prospect for the week. An interesting signing for the Knicks, who are looking to add talent to the Development League affiliate Erie Bayhawks.

-decent vision
-tough spot playing off the ball with Seton Hall’s Theodore.
-found Gates in the right spot. Missed him twice.
-missed advanced pass to get odd man break.
-Passive with his jump shot.
-very good athlete and willing defender.
-very average in pick and roll, will struggle right away in Europe.
