the undersized part is irrelevant since he has elite length for a guard.
But yeah he is overrated as a nba player because he is far from being an efficient shooter , is out of shape and and is not a good athlete. He is a high iq player with smart passing ability as a result, so he might play in the NBA as a rotation player but he needs to get in shape and improve his shooting so imo he will go mid late 2nd under most circumstances ,except the possibility somebody sees something more
THT is basically a younger version of PJ Tucker. He really won’t be able to play shooting guard in the NBA, but his length will enable him to operate as an undersized small forward.

Being built isn’t overweight. He’s more of a SG/SF with the quickness and wingspan to guard 1-4.
THT looks more like a football player than a basketball player. He likely won’t ever be a starter, but he can carve out a role off the bench as a 3 & D guy and scrapper at small forward.

OK people, who is the best shooter in this draft?
I'm asking because I usually know these things but this draft has handcuffed me a lot.

-Fletcher Magee
-Carsen Edwards

-Kyle Guy
-Darius Garland
-Bol Bol
-Jared Harper
-Zach Norvell
-Coby White
-Tyler Herro

You forgetting the Belmont kid Dylan Windler. Windler is easily a top 3 shooter in this draft.

Nah, no way he's in that top-3. Those guys are on another level. Can buy that Windler maybe deserves to be in the second group though.

It’s being reported that De’Andre Hunter has only worked out for Atlanta. One could surmise that the Hawks gave him a promise. Now that there are rumors circulating that Hunter could go before their pick, he may well be the true object of their attempts to trade up, not Jarrett Culver.

Cam Johnson and it's not even close
Don't think he's the best, but was an oversight not to include him in my list. Arguably the best shooter who's not a small/unathletic guard, other than maybe Bol.

The only trade I would consider with Atlanta is 8 &10 for 5 and maybe 26, and even then I'm not happy if that means we get Reddish at 8.
