Draft Notes

Hunter Sallis is a smooth guard with a lanky frame, good quickness and great handles. He’s a great scorer from the wing and excels in transition thanks to his high-end athleticism. He’ll give Gonzaga a versatile player who can play on or off the ball and guard all over the court. He’ll need to refine his play-making skills but has all the tools to be a one and done.

Sallis is one of the most creative finishers in his class and is able to hang in the air, go up and under, and spin the ball of the backboard. He’s got the length and leaping ability to be an above the rim finisher and should improve in this area as he gains strength and power.

He’s got a really nice jumper, getting good elevation and releasing at the top of his jump. His outside shot should develop into a lethal skill at the next levels of play and his mid range game is already very advanced.

Sallis is a pesky perimeter defender with quick hands and always looking to get steals. He currently lacks the bulk to hold his own against NBA caliber 2’s and 3’s but he’s likely to get a long stronger and bigger before he’s draft eligible in 2022.
