Draft Notes

A true point guard with a good size, a strong frame and plays with great pace and balance. Collier is a floor general who knows how to run the show. He’s a great passer and instinctual play-maker who makes his teammates better.

He can also get his own offense and take over games when needed.

Brings a lot of leadership and confidence and is like a coach on the floor.

Excels at running the pick and role. Has a remarkable feel for the game and is incredibly crafty with the ball, although can be too turnover prone and needs to make more consistently smart decisions with the ball.

Isn’t the most explosive player or above-the-rim athlete. Relies on his size/bulk, which might not be as easy at the NBA level. He isn’t a big wingspan guy either, which could lead to more struggles against NBA size.

Isn’t a great 3pt shooter or outside shooter in general. He hit 34% from three in his one year at USC, so not terrible, but it’s not a strength of his game. And he shot just 67% from the FT line.

Suffered a broken hand midway through his freshman season at USC.


Comparisons

  • he reminds me of a bigger and bulkier version of Stephon Marbury.
