Draft Notes

Lander is a big time prospect and potential one and done, or two and thru draft pick. He’s got all the athleticism you could ask for and has a compact and strong frame. He’s high scoring, both by getting into the paint and hitting all sorts of layups or knocking down shots from downtown.

Lander shoots a smooth lefty set-shot and is deadly accurate. He’s got a quick release and only needs a sliver of daylight to get his shot off.

His dribble drive game is strong and he does a good job of using a power dribble to slash to the basket. He uses both hands well but definitely prefers to go left.

As a facilitator Lander sees the game at a high level and is a good decision maker. He’s able to draw the defense with the dribble and commands a lot of attention because of his scoring ability, which helps his teammates get open. He plays with his head up and is a willing passer.

Lander is a very good athlete but isn’t the next Derrick Rose in terms of pure quickness and explosion.
