Draft Notes

Mathurin is an intriguing wing prospect who possess all the tools to excel at the next level and shows flashes of upside ability that makes NBA scouts take notice.

At 6-7 with good strength, length, agility and athletic ability he’s got ideal size for a wing.

He’s got a soft touch on his shot, hitting a high percentage from the FT line and from 3pt territory. He still has to tighten up his handles a bit but shows the ability to get to the rim and make plays off the bounce.

Uses ball fakes well and keeps the defender off balance. Can hit step backs and does a good job of creating space for his shot.

Mathurin is looking like a mid first round pick, with some lottery potential in 2022.
