Joe Abunassar, owner and lead trainer for Impact Basketball in Las Vegas, sees a little bit of Monta Ellis in Josh Selby. Selby is working out at Abunasser's training facility in preparation for the draft.

“Probably the closest comparison I can make is Monta Ellis,” Abunassar told Andy Samuelson, who interviewed him Wednesday for the Journal-World. “I trained him for the draft. Josh has a combination of skills, explosiveness and strength that you just don’t find very often. The way he controls his body is much like Monta did, where he moves in a very unusual way.”

Abunassar considers Selby a combo guard.

“Great change of speeds off ball screens,” Abunassar said. “He can handle the ball. His knowledge of the game is excellent. He sees the floor very, very well.”
