Draft Notes

RJ Nembhard is developing into a nice prospect with a mid second round grade. He might not be a star but his stock is trending up. He does a lot of things well on both ends of the court. He can run the point guard position and handle against pressure while also showing the skills of a scoring wing.

Nembhard is very agile and moves his feet well. He’s shifty and has a quick first step.

On defense he’s able to guard 30 feet from the basket and can guard 1 through 3.

He’s a competitor who plays the game with intensity.
