Draft Notes

Jalen Green is an elite, 5 star player who projects as one of the top prospects in the 2021 draft class. He’s a dynamic 2-guard who is a great slasher and has a natural feel for scoring the ball.

Green has ideal size for the SG position and should continue to grow into his frame. He’s got good length and a quick, wiry body.

Green has a quick first step and plays with good rhythm and change of speed, allowing him to blow by defenders and get to the cup. He elevates well and is a creative finisher. He already shows a good ability to finish through contact and will continue to improve in this regard has he adds weight and strength. He’s an aggressive slasher who can really explode the rim and also has a nice runner which he uses to score over length.

He sees the floor well and knows when to move the ball. Has some point guard skills and is much more than just a scorer.

Keeps the defense honest with his outside shooting and has a deadly step back J. Is becoming a knock down three point shooter.

A solid defender and rebounder who plays a complete game. Has all the tools to develop into a big time defender thanks to his length, size and athletic ability.
