Strengths: Plus shooter from the 3-point range, with a quick trigger both pulling up on the break and off the catch-and-shoot. Becoming a versatile scorer, with a floater in the lane and an increased ability to finish tough shots around the rim. Has good size at the off-guard position and knows how to use that to his advantage; sees the floor well from the perimeter and makes the extra pass.
Weaknesses: Though he’s not un-athletic, needs to continue to work on lateral quickness to become a better defender. Can be a little trigger-happy from the perimeter when his shot isn’t falling. Handle is decent but needs to continue to work in that area so he can get into the lane more and break down defenses.
Overall: Shooters are a commodity, and Daly has the requisite size and athletic ability to play at the Division I level for a program that utilizes his skill set, and those exist in a variety of leagues. That he comes from a basketball family--his dad, Brian Daly is a high-major assistant--doesn’t hurt him, either.
