Scouting Report on Rico Pickettby Jerry Meyer - 01/04/2006
With a very nice combination of size and athleticism at the point guard position, Pickett is an unselfish set up man with good court vision. Good with either hand on the drive and the finish, he can score both at the basket and from the outside. He does tend to force things to the rim when he gets in the lane, though, and has plenty of room to improve as a defender.
