Draft Notes

Darius Acuff Jr. is a special talent. His skill level and feel for the game are off the charts and he dominates the pace of play and looks to be in total control of the game when he’s on the court.

He’s got an uncanny feel for shaking defenders off balance and is nearly impossible to keep out of the lane. Can drive with either hand and has overall great ball handling ability.

Is a tough shot maker who knows how to create space.

Isn’t the biggest point guard and isn’t much of an above the rim player.

Is a capable 3pt shooter but still has work to do to become a knockdown shooter.
