NBA Draft 2015: Sir'Dominic Pointer's Potential Landing Spots

Sir'Dominic Pointer enters the draft as one of the Big East's most intriguing NBA prospects, with his combination of size, athleticism, and energy he brings to his game.

Sir'Dominic Pointer's career at St. John's was filled with flashes of brilliance, yet somehow always left you wanting a little bit more. The athletic swing man has the rebounding and defensive skills to contribute at the next level, yet his offensive game lacks consistency. Despite his lack of offensive polish, Pointer remains an intriguing NBA prospect, so we examined a few of his potential landing spots.

Brooklyn Nets

The Nets lacked consistent play on the wing last season following Paul Pierce's departure, and seem to be searching to upgrade the position. Pointer worked out with Brooklyn back on June 15th, and while his one-man fastbreak offense may not be a fit for a team that plays at one of the slower paces in the league, he could provide plenty of value on defense. If Pointer goes undrafted, it would not shock me at all to see him sign with the team a borough south of Carnesecca Arena.

Detroit Pistons

While Pointer played his college ball in New York, he spent most of his childhood in Detroit, and is drawing some interest from his hometown team. Pointer worked out for the Pistons earlier this month, and could be a nice fit for a team in desperate need of help on the wing. Given his personal history with the city of Detroit, they could be another team willing to give him a shot if he slips through the cracks during the draft.

Golden State Warriors

With Draymond Green scheduled to become a restricted free agent, the defending champs could have a need for more depth on the wing. The Warriors would be a nice fit for Pointer's style of play, and after the NBA Finals Steve Kerr certainly knows the importance of having a embarrassment of riches on the wing.
