What is a Hybrid?  Many coaches know this answer all too well. To me a hybrid on the court can play any position. Hybrid’s have to be able to handle the ball. A good hybrid has enough size to guard all positions on the court. With the capability to also play all positions on offense and handle the ball. A great hybrid can make the right play with a great pass or score at will. NBA Hybrids that come to mind to me were players like Kevin Garnett, Darius Miles, and Lamar Odom.

The first hooper that really stood out to me for that player type was Cailen Shadrick. 6’2’’ AKA"Big Saucey" Cailen has played for me before in another showcase. Saucey can score at all levels and finishes well. He handles the ball extremely well and gets everyone involved on offense. If he isn’t finishing strong, he’s usually dropping a dime to an open player. Shoots the three ball with confidence and well. Shadrick isn’t afraid to get dirty inside on defense and is a great rim protector. Plays his club ball for Ez Work Elite 2025 and attends Davenport
