Draft Notes

McBride is a compact, strong and hard-nosed point guard with nice athletic ability and NBA level tools.

He’s enjoying a breakout sophomore season for the Mountaineers, scoring the ball at a nice clip, hitting his 3pt shots and taking over a leadership role on the team. He’s a point guard who can really score – and he doesn’t need to be a ball dominant player to be effective.

McBride is a stout 1 on 1 defender who slides his feet well, has pesky hands and is a ball-hawk. He’s got a strong upper body and can body up to keep his man out of the lane and can guard up one or two positions thanks to his strength.

McBride projects as a backup at the NBA level but has some sneaky Kyle Lowry-espue upside.
