If Aaron Craft is going to make it in the NBA, he’s probably going to have to do it the hard way. Three talent evaluators all polled at the NBA’s predraft camp this week agreed the Ohio State star is likely to go undrafted next month.

Craft’s shooting woes are evident to everyone. He averaged 10 points a game only once in four years with the Buckeyes and shot 30 percent on 3-pointers as a senior. He appeared at the NBA’s predraft camp this week acknowledging his shooting woes while insisting he’s still working on it.

“We all wish we could shoot like Steph Curry,” Craft said. “But that’s just not the case.”

Craft became one of the country’s most beloved college players because of his hustle and tenacity, particularly defensively. The Cavs already have a point guard like that in Matthew Dellavedova, whose gritty defense annoyed opponents throughout his rookie season.

But Dellavedova sharpened his 3-point shooting and became a consistent threat by the end of the season, ending the year shooting 37 percent on 3s. It was a higher percentage than Kyrie Irving and Jarrett Jack. But Delly also shot 38 percent from 3 during his four years at St. Mary’s, much higher than Craft.

Craft didn’t watch many Cavs games this season, he said, but he’s aware of Delly’s trek from undrafted to rotation player because Craft’s roommate was a big Cavs fan.

“I definitely know of him,” Craft said of Dellavedova. “Great kid. I’d just love to have an opportunity like he does.”

One NBA talent evaluator, however, likened Craft to the Brooklyn Nets’ Jorge Gutierrez, who was the Pac-12 Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year at Cal in 2012 before going undrafted.

Gutierrez spent time with the Canton Charge this season before latching on with the Nets. He’s under contract to them next season, but only a small portion of the deal is guaranteed.

Craft believes if he continues to improve his shot, he could some day evolve into a player like Kirk Hinrich. That’s a lofty comparison considering Hinrich was a lottery pick, but for now, Craft will continue trying to get jobs with his defense.

“My calling card has been defense since I’ve been playing basketball,” he said. “That’s what I’m going to continue to lean on. That’s what I do.”

High ceiling

Arizona State point guard Jahii Carson only measured 5-foot-9¾ at the NBA combine, easily making him the shortest player here. That makes his 43.5-inch vertical leap all the more impressive.

Carson tied with Oklahoma State’s Markel Brown for the highest vertical jump of the 60 camp invitees.

Carson was a teammate of Cavs guard Carrick Felix while with the Sun Devils and compared Felix’s motor to the Denver Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried.

“He’s a workhorse. He tries to outwork everybody. He tries to give the most energy and intensity there is,” Carson said. “With that motor, he’s going to be in the league a long time.”

Hands down
