Draft Notes

Kinsey isn’t a household name but he’s got the makings of an NBA player with some first round potential. Expect to hear more about him as the season progresses and the draft gets closer.

Does a good job of using his athleticism to get to the rim and not just settle for outside shots.

Does most of his damage going to the right and needs to work on his off hand.

Can get his own shot off the dribble and has a nice mid range game using his size and strength to create space for his shot.

Has good length and gets off the ground well, making him an excellent above the rim player who makes it look easy.

Has had some struggles from the FT line, although is much improved in this area. Hopefully those improvements stick.
