Whaley has always been known as both a very talented player and a serious head-case. A former second round pick of the Utah Jazz, his NBA career didn’t last longer than one season, and he found himself playing in the ABA and Iran last season. Skill-wise, Whaley is an intriguing player, showing nice athleticism (if in shape) and excellent skills both facing and with his back to the basket, but he must mature in order to make it back to the NBA. Talent wise, there are few, if any big men who can even compare to him at this level. As a mid-round D-League draft pick, he could turn into good value, or he could flame out quickly.
