Joshua Scott McRoberts (born Feb. 28, 1987) is a 10-year NBA veteran out of Duke University. He made the ACC All-Freshman Team in 2006 and helped led the Blue Devils to a 32-4 record. As a sophomore he averaged 13.0 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game, and became the first Duke player ever to tally at least four points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals in the same game.
Known for his exceptional passing ability for a big man, McRoberts is one of the more unique power forwards in the game. Perhaps his best season came while playing for the Charlotte Hornets in 2013-14, when he averaged 4.3 dimes per contest. As the basketball revolution has demanded big men to step out to the 3-point line, McRoberts has adjusted. During the last four seasons, he’s shot 35.4 percent from beyond the arc on 2.5 attempts per game.
McRoberts was named the 2005 McDonald’s All-American Player of the Year as a high school senior, as well as a McDonald’s and First-team Parade All-American. Hailing from Carmel, Indiana, McRoberts was considered the No. 1 power forward in his class before committing to Duke.
