Summary:

Amir Coffey is an athletic, combo forward that is an early entrant in the 2019 NBA Draft.  He averaged 16.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.2 steals per game this season for the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

He is a point forward type of player that can facilitate the basketball and may project into a defensive specialist type of role, but he will need to show that he can shoot and defend upper echelon players consistently.  Right now, he may be a borderline second round candidate in this year’s draft.
