Draft Notes

A big playmaker who’s got uncanny court vision and the size to get to where he wants on the court. Nix might be the top passer in his class. He excels at getting open shots for teammates and is a true floor general.

He’s not the most explosive above the rim athlete but he’s got brute strength and a low center of gravity that serves him well.

His stint in the G League has been positive, as he’s shown off his passing, his ability to control the pace of play and how he can use his great natural strength to score in the lane.

He’s looking like a mid first round pick with some lottery upside.
