He's a 6'7" SG/SF, weighs ~195 pounds give or take. He is a senior and is probably one of the older guys in the draft, as he'll be 23 come September.

Strengths:
- Elite outside shooter; made 100 three pointers last season at a 42.9% clip (took 7.9 per game)
- Elite at coming off screens in a catch and shoot position (also has a gorgeous left handed shooting stroke)
- Good transition three point shooter and is effective in a fast-paced offense
- Averaged 10.8 rebounds per game despite spending a great deal of his time floating around the perimeter, very ball hungry and aggressive in that aspect
- Not much of a slasher off the dribble, but is great at reading defenses and making sharp cuts that lead to some easy baskets
- 85% free throw shooter
- Only averaged 2.1 TO/G despite being the focal point of Belmont's offense and one of their main ball-handlers

Weaknesses:
- Not very physically strong; will probably get muscled a bit in the NBA
- Not much of a shot blocker
- Defense will probably end up below average at best
- Will be 23 at the start of his rookie season

I think he's pretty much the next coming of Kyle Korver, except he's left handed and projects to be a far better rebounder, passer, and ball-handler than Korver ever was. Probably won't ever be much of a defender, but also could end up as the best pure shooter in this draft class.

A lot of mocks have him going anywhere from 33-43, but I would not be upset one bit if the Cavaliers took a gamble on this kid with that Rockets pick in the first round. At his peak, I think you're looking at a sixth/seventh-man microwave off the bench that could shoot 44-47% from three, not turn the ball over much when he's in the game, and help out with the rebounding out of a wing position.

I think he was the one who almost upset Maryland in the tournament. He made a lot of step back 3s from what I remember. And he does a good job in running off the ball - good for Belein’s system too.

Honestly, he looks quicker and more athletic than Korver - especially on those cuts to the basket. But like Korver, he's just deadly coming off screens. Give that dude an inch, and up it goes.

Really good pick at 26.
