Good athlete

Summary:

Aaron Henry is an athletic, swingman that can project into a 3 and D role in the NBA.  He had a very good showing in the 2019 NCAA Tournament.  Henry is also a very good defender, and he had a terrific defensive game in his team’s win over Duke recently.  He is an unselfish player that can rack up assists, but his shooting percentages has taken a bit of a hit, as he has struggled to take on more volume as an offensive player.

He’s a smart, skilled player that has a knack for making solid team plays, but he will need to regain his outside shooting touch that he has shown previously.  He is a solid playmaker and defensive player whose skill set could enable him to be a good value pick for an NBA team in the second round range of the 2021 draft.
