Draft Notes

Bridges is the consummate role player who excels as an off the ball do-everything wing who will be a 3&D player at the next level. He does all of the little things well and doesn’t need the ball to be effective. He moves well without the ball and is a good cutter with solid finishing ability in the lane.

Bridges has struggled a bit with his 3pt shot but he’s got great form and the numbers don’t tell the whole story.

On the defensive end Bridges can lock down 1-3 and even guard smaller 4’s. He’s a really good help defender who has great awareness and instincts.
