Draft Notes

After not working out at Texas Tech Nimari is taking his considerable talents to Alabama, joining an absolutely loaded young backcourt.

A scoring guard with a sturdy frame and a smooth, compact jumper, Burnett can get buckets from inside and out. He’s got a good low post game for a guard and uses his big frame well. Has an advanced mid range game and knows how to create space for his shot.

He plays both ends and gives good effort on defense.
