Brady Manek is a skilled, sharpshooting forward that excels at knocking down jumpers to provide floor spacing for his team on offense. He is a tall shooter that can create favorable mismatches for his team due to possessing solid size and shooting ability, and he also has good hands, which enables him to catch lobs to finish plays above the rim. He will need to improve in the other facets of the game, but his jump shot could allow him to make an NBA team’s roster.
