Andre Curbelo is an agile, skilled playmaker that has been getting some early draft buzz for the upcoming season. He is a crafty scorer that can make shots off the dribble and he can reliably run the point, but he will need to improve his outside shot, and he can tend to be turnover and foul prone at times. Recently, he announced that he will transfer to St. John’s for his junior season. Currently, he is a borderline second round candidate for the 2023 draft.
