Draft Notes

Peat is a powerful and broad-shouldered combo forward with an advanced skill set. He does a little bit of everything on the court; scoring inside and out, crashing the glass and defending multiple positions.

He can handle the ball, face-up or play with his back to the basket. He overpowers wings and can take bigs off the dribble. A tough match-up.

He’s not the flashiest player out there but puts in work and is super productive. I see him as more of high-end role player rather than a star at the next level.

He’s not yet a knockdown shooter and will have to continue to expand his game. Doesn’t have a very fast release and the jumper is still a work in progress.

He’s a good athlete but not super twitchy. And he’s a bit undersized for the PF position.
