Draft Notes

Ivey is a high level athlete and a standout defender with some intriguing NBA level tools. He’s got long arms and very quick hands and can guard 1-3.

On the offensive end he’s at his best taking the ball into the lane and using his quickness, leaping ability and length to score in the paint.

He struggles shooting the ball from deep and is just average from the FT line but has shown improvement and is on his way to rounding out his offensive game. His shot looks good and he’ll just need to get more consistent and more efficient.

On the defensive end Ivey is a pesky on the ball defender who really gets after it. He hounds opposing ball handlers and puts constant pressure on the ball. He reads the passing lanes well and gives good help defense.

Ivey had a great freshman season at Purdue, getting better and better as the season progressed. He’s on track to be a lottery pick the 2022 NBA Draft and could rise into the top 5 if he continues to expand his game.
