Draft Notes

Pate is a long, tall combo guard who has a downhill style of play and is a creative finisher in the lane. He’s tough to stop once he gets a head of steam and he uses his length and body control to score against bigs.

Has good touch around the rim and can hit acrobatic layups with either hand.

He’s got ideal size for a primary ball-handler and is a big time athlete.

Can play on or off the ball. Has good shooting form and shows a lot of promise as an outside shooter but still has work to do.
