The Cleveland Cavaliers have added Carrick Felix, a 6-foot-6-inch shooting guard out of Arizona State, with the 33rd-overall selection.
Felix has drawn comparisons to Andre Iguodala and Jimmy Butler, possessing the versatility and athleticism to play and defend either wing position. He is a high-energy guy who runs the floor well and can hit the outside shot. He gets knocked a bit for shot selection and a relative lack of mid-range game, but is—by all reports—a high-character guy. Also not helping Felix’ case is the fact that he will be 23 years old in August and didn’t really blossom as a player until his final year.
Felix was named All-Pac 12 1st Team All-Conference and All-Defensive during his senior year, averaging 14.6 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. He had 13 double-doubles as a senior after having none over his first two seasons at Arizona St. He will presumably compete for a roster spot, providing depth behind Dion Waiters, CJ Miles and Wayne Ellington at the wing.
