Draft Notes

A big time athlete with upside who has had a big senior season for Illinois, averaging over 23ppg and putting on a show.

He’s facing serious charges off the court which could have a big impact on his draft stock.

Shannon is a high flying lefty who can bring down the house with his dunking ability. He’s not yet a great outside shooter but improved his 3pt percentage to 36% this season and is on a good trajectory as a shooter.

He’s a pure wing who can handle, pass, defend and change ends in a flash. He’s got the physical profile to be a great defender in the league and already shows some lock down ability.

Part of the story with Shannon is about projection. He’s got tools, talent, great coaching and he brings good effort. At this point it’s all about skill development and sharpening those tools. He needs to get better at finishing with his right hand and tightening up his handles. And his 3pt shooting could be the thing that makes or breaks his NBA career.
