Draft Notes

Walker is an intriguing combo forward who looks like he’ll have a role in the NBA thanks to his sweet shooting stroke from downtown. If he can develop and round out the rest of his offensive game he’ll be a problem.

Walker had insanely good shooting splits his freshman year (52/52/78) in about 14 minutes a game. This shooting rate might not be sustainable going forward but it’s not a fluke; Walker can really stroke the ball.

He’s not yet much of a play-maker and doesn’t yet have point-forward skills. This will be a big area of development for him.

Walker has decent length and size with good athleticism, but isn’t a freak athlete.
