Draft Notes

Edwards is a multi-talented forward who projects as a floor-spacing, 3&D wing. His perimeter shot will get him a long look from NBA teams and he’s got the requisite size and agility to make it at the NBA level.

He’s got a nice quick release on his jumper and has been a consistent shooter over the years.

Edwards has quick hands and feet on defense and can guard a few positions. He can switch off on guards as needed and can even hold his own in the paint and guard some bigs.
