Draft Notes

Walter is a prototypical two-guard who has the size, the tools an the talent to be a high level NBA player.

He’s a skilled shot-maker with deep range on his jumper and nice shooting form. Has a really smooth release and puts great rotation on the ball.

Has the handles and acceleration to get past defenders and does a nice job of finding his mid range game. Gets great elevation on his jumper.

Uses ball fakes, hesi’s, hang dribbles and other moves, showing off a deep bag and a lot of swagger with the ball in his hands.

Competes on both ends and doesn’t take plays off.

Has enough size and athleticism for the league but isn’t an elite athlete.
