Aaron Henry is an athletic, swingman that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He had a very good showing in the 2019 NCAA Tournament. He is an unselfish player that can rack up assists, but his shooting percentages took a bit of a hit, as he struggled to take on more volume this year.
He’ll need to be more assertive on offense, as he has a tendency to fade into the background too much. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft. If things break his way, he could project to be an effective rotation player for an NBA team in the association.
