Draft Notes

Steward is at his best with the ball in his hands, breaking down the defense and getting to the rim. He’s a quick athlete with excellent handles (although he likes to drive to the right) and he’s tough to keep out of the lane.

He plays with great energy but makes the game look easy. He’s got an extra gear in the open court and gets above the rim with ease.

His shooting form isn’t ideal but he can hit the outside shot and keep defenses honest. It’ll be interesting to see how his shot and his shooting form evolve over the next few seasons.

He’s built like a point guard but plays more like a shooting guard. Can he develop his lead guard skills?
