Tony Omotayo: Stud or One year wonder? - Oct 20, 2012

Tony Omotayo

ATLANTA Enough scorers have enjoyed career seasons next to DeAndre Bray (5'6''-G-85, agency: Gamble Sports Management, college: Jacksonville St.) to question whether Tony Omotayo (6'4''-F-85, college: Ft.Valley St.) will be the same offensive player without him around.

Every Lion figures to take some kind of efficiency hit without Bray, but no Atlanta player relied on him more to create easy buckets than Omotayo last season, although the flip side of that is that Bray needed an excellent roll man like Omotayo more than any other Lion to be successful himself.

According to Usbasket, Omotayo was assisted on 70.0 percent of his buckets in 2011-12 with the Lions last year. A third of his 2011-12 plays came as the roll man (more than any other play type), UBABasket, a play on which he scored 1.23 points per play (10th in the league). Thus some wonder whether he can repeat his superb 16.4 ppg season on 50.5 percent shooting (60.8 percent with Bray, 44.0 percent without him, per the UBAs stats tool) with Bray no longer around to set him up.

Omotayo was by far the Most Valuable Player for the Lions in the UBA championship game last summer (24 points and 8 rebounds), but the team came up short to the hands of Jermaine Barnes (6'5''-G/F-82, agency: Gamble Sports Management, college: Point, GA) and the GIE Maile Matrix.

He was an ideal pick-and-roll partner for Bray with his combination of athleticism, agility and quickness in a 6-foot-5 package. The Nigerian-America was the biggest surprise for the UBA coming off a season ending injury in 2010-11. He return with a new mind set and focus for the game that wasnt expected. Omotayo averaged a career best 16.4ppg, 6.5rpg shooting over 50%. He was later named Usbasket.com All-UBA Import Player of the Year.

Omotayo so badly wanted an opportunity to prove himself upon landing in UBA, and he found himself in a perfect situation with the unselfish Bray. Yet now without him he bristled at a question during Media Day about whether his game would change without the PRIMESs new point guard.

"Tony is ready to be a big contributor for us this season", says head coach Mike Dennis . As long as he continues to work like he does he will be one of the top forwards in the league this season.
