Very good shooter, especially from deep

Adequate playmaker for his size
Moves well off the ball on offense
Decent rebounder for his size
Solid athlete

Summary:

Aaron Nesmith is an athletic, skilled swingman that had a strong sophomore season before he ended up missing the rest of the year due to a foot injury.  He is a player that can flat out shoot the basketball, but he will need to improve his defense.  He is a sharpshooter that can really put up points, and he could be a good pick for an NBA team in the mid to late first round range in 2020.
