D-League Pre-Draft Power Rankings / Allocation List
November 7, 2008
Mitchell is one of the best athletes in the D-League, a chiseled 6-3 shooting guard with excellent defensive potential, albeit questionable range on his shot and improvable ball-handling skills. He was having a good season last year before being bought out of his contract by German team Bamberg.

NBA D-League Showcase, Day One
January 15, 2008
Dwayne recently lost his starting job in Iowa after a bad stretch of games. He came out strong against Dakota, however, scoring 23 points and getting to the basket at will.

Mitchell has a very strong upper body, which allows him to absorb contact and finish at the rim. Several times he got into the paint and attempted acrobatic finishes getting to the line 15 times, but failing to convert on 10 of them. This is a major weakness for a player who relies so heavily on his slashing game, as leaving 10 points on the board was clearly the difference between a win and a loss for his team tonight, and probably what would have been considered a breakout performance individually for him. Mitchell suffered some of these same problems in college, so clearly it’s something he must address.

With that said, we might be talking about the most physically impressive player in attendance here. On one play he jumped from one side of the basket and pump faked before reaching the other side and then attempting a reverse dunk. He missed the dunk, but the play showcased how incredibly athletically he is. He also showed nice touch after getting fouled in the lane and then flailing backwards and throwing up a pretty high arcing floater. He’s not only extremely explosive, but is also incredibly strong. To take his game to the next level, though, he must simplify his moves, getting rid of many of the pump-fakes and double clutches he throws in unnecessary, which led to quite a few misses that he easily could have converted had he taken a more simple route.

Mitchell has a lot of talent and if continues to play like he did tonight he’ll certainly get his starting role back in short order. We’re talking about a player with outstanding upside to continue to improve, who is nowhere near his peak as of yet.

2007-08 D-League Draft/Season Preview
November 1, 2007
Possibly the most athletic player in this pool of players, Dwayne Mitchell already has the physical attributes needed to play in the NBA. An explosive leaper in particular, Mitchell was a true stat-sheet stuffer in his senior season (2005-06) at Louisiana Lafayette, averaging 16 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 turnovers, and 2 steals. He was on the verge of being drafted last June, but saw most teams back off after being diagnosed (allegedly incorrectly according to his agent at the time) with a heart condition at the NBA pre-draft camp. Mitchell went to play professionally in Paris, where he had an up and down season playing for a bad team. Mitchell’s biggest hurdle will be to improve his perimeter shot, which is by far his biggest weakness. Gaining experience and improving his feel for the game would also go a long ways in helping him achieve his considerable potential.
