Draft Notes

Josh Green is a powerful 2 guard who plays a complete game and really competes on both ends of the floor. The Australian native had solid freshman season at Arizona and is looking like a mid to late first round pick in the 2020 draft.

  • Versatility on both ends of the floor:
  • Green can guard multiple positions thanks to his good combination of size, strength and foot-speed
  • On offense he can do a little bit of everything but is mostly a slasher and gets buckets in transition
  • Has a solid build and a lot of natural strength
  • Has ideal size for the shooting guard position and has great length for size (nearly a plus 5 wingspan)
  • A high end athlete who is a blur in the open court and can play above the rim
  • Can rip and run, taking the defensive rebound coast to coast
  • Shows some promise as an iso scorer and should improve in this area over his career
  • And shows promise as a catch and shoot 3pt shooter, hitting 36% from downtown last season.
  • Can get his own shot and has a sweet pull-up jumper off the dribble but still has some growing to do in this area
  • Has excellent court vision and is a willing passer who makes the right basketball play – very much a team first guy.
  • Needs to develop his left hand dribble and scoring touch
  • Has a bit of wind-up in his shot and doesn’t have ideal shooting form
  • Is not the most creative ball handler and needs to develop his dribble-drive game
