Breakout Player: NBA Player's Camp
(College Station, Texas/ A&M Consolidated)
2012, SG, 6-5, 180 pounds
A virtual unknown until now, Caruso is a SG with a deceptive athletic ability and instincts for the game on both ends of the floor. With his vision and passing ability, he makes the assist or keeps the ball moving to help an offense stay fluid. Without the ball in his hands, he understands spacing and will play off his teammates to free himself. He is comfortable and confident with his long range shooting and can put a streak of points together by taking advantage of defensive mistakes. Defensively, his anticipation off the ball is quick and he doesn't gamble but gets his share of good steals.
