Draft Notes

Baldwin is a big wing/forward who excels at shooting the rock. He’s got such as smooth game for a player his size with deft ball handling ability and a lethal jump shot.

He’s not the most explosive athlete you’ll ever see but he’s got great size, good strength and more than enough agility/quickness to hold his own at the highest levels of competition.

His 3pt shooting ability really separates him from most other prospects in his class. He’s got great mechanics, deep range and deadly accuracy from downtown.

With shooting at a premium Baldwin is a tailor-made modern day stretch-4.

One question with PBJ is whether he’s best suited playing off the ball and spacing the floor or if he can be a first option offensively at the NBA level. There’s a chance he’s more of an elite role player than a superstar.

He’s playing against lower levels of competition at Wisconsin, Milwaukee. It would have been nice to see him playing in the SEC or similar.
