Aaron Nesmith

NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT

Pos: SG SFFROM: VanderbiltHT: 6-6WT: 213
BORN: NAYEAR: So.WING: 6-9REACH: NA

OVERVIEW

A three point marksman and standout defender who had a breakout sophomore season. Can get really hot from downtown and projects as a floor spacing 3&D player.

Does a good job of moving without the basketball and using screens to find space. Has a quick trigger and is an excellent catch and shoot player.

He’s not the most natural creator and doesn’t project as a primary initiator at the next level. Has a solid frame and can finish through contact but isn’t the most explosive above the rim player.

Recovering from a foot injury in January, 2020.
