Edmonton Super Star
 

Jermaine Bucknor, a member of the "All-Atlantic 10 2nd Team 2006", is a natural small forward who is versatile enough to play as a shooting guard as well. Great scorer and rebounder for his position. Knows how to use his size, strength and back to the basket technicals to take advantage in offense. Has a deadly efficience on the curl in the traffic. Jermaine is a type of scorer who can drive to the basket or shoot from the field. He has a good catch and shoot, because of this weapon, he's a real danger for the defense. Very talented player. Good ballhandler who plays the game with a lot of confidence. He has good athleticism. Can be considered as a "Cotonou" player because he obtained his Jamaican passport in October 2007.

June 6, 2006

TORONTO (CP) - Jermaine Bucknor became the latest Canadian to work out for the Toronto Raptors on Friday and he auditioned liked anything but a token local kid.

The unheralded Edmonton forward opened some eyes among the Raptors brass during the 90-minute session at the Air Canada Centre in his first NBA workout.

``Very surprising,'' said Jim Kelly, the Raptors' director of player personnel. ``Versatility. He looks like he could defend some fours (power forwards). Twos (shooting guards) and threes (small forwards) as well. He shot the ball well and had a little bit of grit to him.

``I thought he had a very good showing here today.''

The six-foot-seven Bucknor shone as a high school player at Edmonton's Ross Sheppard, named team MVP all four years. Then in college, he led the University of Richmond in scoring (13.5 points per game) and steals (1.2 per game) and was second in rebounding (4.3 per game) in his senior season. He's also been a key member of Canada's national team the past couple of summers.

But coming from a small college program, he flew under the radar _ Kelly admitted he'd never seen Bucknor play _ and now he's just hoping to leave a lasting impression.

``I came from a small school, but a good a program,'' said Bucknor. ``I've worked hard over the past few years to try to build myself up, to just give myself an opportunity like this. That's where I see myself right now.''

Bucknor held his own with Syracuse guard Gerry McNamara and Cincinnati forward James White _ the NCAA slam dunk winner _ along with Duke guard Sean Dockery, Oklahoma forward Taj Grey and South Florida forward Solomon Jones at the Air Canada Centre on Friday.

``These are guys from big schools, guys I watch on TV all the time, but at the same time, it's basketball. Basketball is basketball,'' said Bucknor. ``I'm 22 years old, I've been playing this game for a long time, just like these guys have been playing for a long time. I went to a smaller school, but I still think I can hang a little bit with them.''

``I think we'll lean toward the player that plays the best for us. (Nationality) is a consideration but I don't think that should be the major consideration why you take him,'' said Kelly.

Bucknor has no other NBA workouts planned, so he'll head to Washington, D.C., to work out with a friend, and then back to Richmond, Va. He'll likely join the Canadian team for a series of exhibition games in Italy, Germany and Slovenia in July.

After that, he'll likely be bound for a pro league in Europe.

``I would love to play in the NBA, it's a dream of mine, it's a dream I've always had, I've always looked towards that and that's still the No. 1 goal in my basketball career right now,'' said Bucknor. ``If it doesn't work out, I'll definitely go overseas and work my way back to get another opportunity, another shot to play here
