Draft Notes

Council IV is a well built 6-6 shooting guard who plays with a downhill style and is wired to score the ball.

He excels in transition and getting out on the break. A great finisher who plays above the rim with ease.

Is not yet a consistent 3pt shooter and will have to improve his shooting to maximize his value at the next level.

A solid one on one defender who can guard 1-3.
