Anton Watson is an athletic, high-motor combo forward that can make hustle plays on both ends of the floor. He is also an underrated passer for his size, and can notch assists on offense. He will need to improve his outside shot and ability to create off the dribble, but his athleticism, motor, and intangibles could enable him to make his way to the NBA.
