Draft Notes

Hawkins is one of the better 3pt shooters in this draft class and is the best movement shooter. He’s elite at coming off of screens, catching and firing lasers from deep.

Trying to guard Hawkins looks like the most exhausting assignment any defender could be given. He’s constantly on the move and flies around screens, ready to get his shot off in a hurry.

He has greatly improved his dribble drive game and is now a real threat going to the hoop. Is an awesome FT shooter, hitting close to 90% from the line as a sophomore.

Plays both ends and is a solid defender and defensive rebounder. Isn’t going to be a star defender at the next level but can definitely hold his own.

Has good but not great size. Might struggle to handle bigger guards and wings at the next level.
