Draft Notes

Drake Powell is an upside athlete with awesome leaping ability, agility and length. He’s far from a finished product and will take some time to develop but has a bright basketball future ahead of him.

At this point Powell is at his best slashing to the basket, cutting off the ball and finishing in transition. His jumper is still a work in progress but he has time to put in the work and improve in this area.

He’s a high energy player who gives great effort on both ends.

I doubt he’s a one and done but could jump to the league after a few seasons in college.
