Draft Notes

McCain is a high level guard prospect who projects as a possible lottery to mid first round pick in the 2024 NBA Draft. He’s one of the best perimeter shooters in the draft class and can get smoking hot from downtown. He shoots the ball with a ton of confidence, has a quick release, deep range and a shot that will translate to the NBA level.

He can play on or off the ball, has some play-making and creation ability but his main NBA skill is his scoring.

He’s a gamer and winner. Makes the right play, is unselfish on the court but also knows when to take the big shot.

While he’s not the biggest or most athletic guard he’s good a strong frame and should be just fine guarding 2’s at the NBA level. He’s a solid and instinctual team defender but has some limitations guarding the ball and his 6-3 1/2 wingspan limits his defensive upside.

McCain has a ton of personality on and off the court and is a major social media star and performer.

Has elite intangibles.
