Aidan Mahaney is a skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He is a craft ball handler that changes speeds well, and he does a good job of maneuvering ways to get his shots off on offense. He’ll need to show NBA teams that he can reliably run the point at higher levels and defend upper echelon opponents, but his jump shot and advanced feel for the game could enable him to make it to the NBA in the future.
