Draft Notes

Edwards is an undersized scoring guard with a huge heart. He plays with passion, steps up in big moments and is the guy you want to have the ball in his hands late in the game. He’s got an impressive ability to get his own shot, despite his 6-0 size. He can stroke it with deep range or take it to the cup. His strength and low center of gravity help him carve out space in the lane and he has an uncanny ability to create space against taller defenders and still get a good look at the basket.

He’ll need to develop as a point guard to make it in the League. At this point he’s mainly a scoring guard who looks to shoot first.
