Draft Notes

After a successful season with the G League Ignite Dyson Daniels has solidified himself as one of the premier talents in this draft class, with mid lottery potential. The big guard/wing from Australia has all the tools, both physically and mentally and very intriguing upside.

At 6-7 1/2 (in shoes) he’s got great size for a guard and very solid athleticism. He’s a quick-twitch athlete, has quick feet and hands and a lot of bounce.

Although he’s not a high volume shot-taker he’s got solid shooting form and should become a knockdown shooter in time.

Has some point-forward abilities and a very good feel for the game and for setting up teammates.

Dyson really stands out on the defensive end and might be the best perimeter defender in this draft class (or at least one of the best). He gets low in his stance, has great footwork, very quick hands and plays with great positioning.

He’s young and has a lot of development left to go but looking ahead a few years he could become one of the standout two-way players in the league.
