Barra Nije is an athletic playmaker that can reliably run the team at the point, and he is automatically draft eligible for the 2022 draft. He currently plays for the Delaware Blue Coats in the NBA G League. He will need to significantly improve his jump shot, but if he can make strides on offense, he could project into a backup point guard role in the NBA someday.
