Summary:

Andrew Nembhard is a smart, skilled playmaker that played a vital role on Gonzaga’s team this past season. He is a tall point guard that can reliably run the team. He will need to make more shots consistently, and be a more aggressive player on offense.  He had a great start to this season, but he also sometimes had poor shooting nights and uncharacteristic turnovers in other games.  He then had a very good showing in the 2022 NBA Draft Combine.  Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
