Draft Notes

Jordan Longino is a sweet shooting scoring guard with a strong, low center of gravity frame. His calling card at the next level and the skill that makes him an NBA draft prospect is his 3pt shooting.

Longino can shoot off the dribble and hit pull up 3 pointers, showing a pure stoke and an effortless release. He’s a lethal catch and shoot player who is elite at hitting the corner 3.

The next step in his game will be developing his handles and ability to create offense for himself and his teammates.

Longino does most of his scoring from 3 and from mid range, where he does a great job of getting to his spots and creating space with step back jumpers. He does a nice job of using jab steps and ball fakes to create space, making up for the fact that he doesn’t have elite burst or blow-by speed.

As an athlete Longino is a bit stiff and doesn’t have elite above the rim ability. He’s got the size and strength to hold his own defensively but doesn’t have elite foot-speed or great hips.
