He could be described: (by Kevin Duffy for NBADraft.net in 2009)
Can knock down some very difficult jumpshots with taller, more athletic defenders in his face … Gets tremendous lift on his jumpshot, which helps compensate for his less-than-stellar athleticism … Has a good, solid build for an NBA point guard at 6-foot-2, 190-pounds … Uses his body well to get into the lane and has improved considerably at knocking down floaters and short pull-up jumpshots.
While his quickness is fine, Price doesn't jump particularly well, which hinders his ability to finish at the rim … He gets good elevation on his jumpshot, but will have a much tougher time shooting over the elite athletes who play in the NBA

On Ayres: (by Borko Popic for NBADraft.net in 2009)
He is a competitor, battles at all times to establish post position and is very active … His motor is excellent and he shows it by running the floor as well as anyone in the country … Around the basket he is very active and he knows how to move without the ball to get to open spaces … Has been the beneficiary of some great passes, but a lot of it has to do with his ability to read the action as well as being able to catch pretty much any pass that is thrown his way.
His repertoire in the post is limited, as a result he does not demand much attention from defenses … Struggles getting his shot of against bigger defenders
