Draft Notes

Watson has a broad base, a thick frame and natural strength. He can score on the low block and hit from outside and he’s also a polished passer. The ball skills and overall skill level that he possesses are advanced for his age. He can handle in the open court, make plays for his teammates. And he’s a load to handle once he gets up a head of steam in the open court.

While not the fastest athlete Watson has enough lateral agility and foot-speed to guard in space. He also shows good defensive awareness and positioning and seems to understand the game at a high level. Watson doesn’t necessarily project as a great rim protector at the next level but he should be effective guarding in the paint due to his strength, size and smarts.
