Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Excels at scoring on the move
Decent defensive player
Reluctant to take outside shots
May lack an elite first step off the dribble
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Can have lapses defensively
Limited experience against top competition
Ade Murkey is an athletic, energetic swingman that could project to be a 3 and D type of player in the NBA. He can knock down outside shots off the catch with smooth ease, and he also can get numerous scores on the break. He will need to look to take more jump shots in games and be a more focused defender, and there are also concerns about the level of competition he’s faced, as he played at a small D1 school. He may be an unlikely bet to be drafted, but his versatility combined with having good athletic gifts could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA.
