Draft Notes

Mathurin is an intriguing wing prospect who possess all the tools to excel at the next level and shows flashes of All Star level talent. He went from a solid freshmen season to a breakout sophomore campaign and has played his way into the lottery.

At 6-6 with good length and athletic ability he’s got ideal size for a wing. He’s got a strong upper body and a solid base and plays under control. He’s not the most twitchy player you’ll ever see but he’s got good burst, a quick first step and plenty of bounce to get above the rim.

He’s got a compact and consistent shooting stroke and a soft touch on his shot. Is a good iso scorer, either gaining separation for his jumper or making power drives into the lane and using his elite abilities to score in the paint.

Is a pretty efficient on good volume, hitting 37% from 3pt and 77% from the FT line.

He still has to tighten up his handles a bit and put more consistent pressure on the rim.
