Draft Notes

Edgecombe is an elite level prospect. A speedy 6-5 guard with broad shoulders, wiry and smooth athleticism and big time ability. The way he moves on the court is special. He easily passes the eye test and looks like a future superstar on the court.

Edgecombe has a really nice blend of driving ability and shot-making. He’s got a smooth release on his jumper and is a developing 3pt shooter. His outside shot isn’t a strength of his game but is well on its way to becoming a major weapon for him.

He’s a force going to the basket, gliding to the hoop and showing off his hops and hang-time. He can get wherever he wants on the court using a blazing first step, good handles and just being a better athlete than anyone else on the court.

He’s also a standout defender who has great hands, great timing, gets a lot of steals and his a high level shot blocker for a guard/wing. He can pressure the ball and is a disruptive defender. He gives elite energy and effort on defense and leads by example.

Plays with an edge, is a hard worker and seems to have that it factor and the will to be great.

Needs to improve his ball-handling ability and continue to refine his game but as all the tools to be special.

He doesn’t have elite size, about 6-3 without shoes on, and so will need to develop as a combo guard with some more primary ball handling duties.
