Scouting Report on Mike Mercerby Jerry Meyer - 08/24/2004
Mercer is a very athletic and long point guard who can defend either guard position and rebound with the big boys. Very good with the ball, he can create a shot whenever he wishes and find the open man. He is prone to get lackadaisical with the ball at times. A lock down defender on either guard position, he has the size and skill to be an NBA point guard one day.
