Ben Sheppard is an agile, skilled guard that can help his team in a variety of ways on offense. He recently declared to enter the 2023 draft, and he excels at making plays with the ball in his hands. He’ll need to show that he can continue to play well against upper-echelon opponents, but his ability to make shots and passes on offense combined with his length and athleticism could make him an intriguing option for NBA teams to consider on draft day.
