Draft Notes

Dillon Mitchell is a rare type of athlete, even by NBA standards. He flies up and down the court and finishes with his head at the rim.

He’s got broad shoulders and a chiseled physique and might even be able to play some small ball 4 in the future.

Mitchell is comfortable with the ball in his hands and shows some ability to create offense for himself and others, especially going left. He’s deadly in transition and can bring the house down with his dunking ability.

His mid range and outside shooting is still a work in progress.

Long, bouncy wings like Mitchell tend to get drafted high, even if their skills are unrefined and still developing.
