Draft Notes

Jaden Hardy is one of the most elite bucket-getters in his class. He’s nearly impossible to guard one on one and is a scoring machine. He is the top NBA prospect on the G League Ignite squad and should follow in Jalen Green’s footsteps as a high lottery pick.

At 6-5 he’s got good size for the shooting guard position and high end athleticism and a quick first step. He’s a good ball handler who can get to his spots and create his own shot.

Hardy has deep range and is an elite shot maker. He can carry a team with his offensive ability, draining 3’s from the logo or breaking down the defense with the dribble and scoring from mid range or in the lane.

Hardy has some James Harden-like ability and will be a very hot commodity for NBA teams.
