Cade Cunningham is a smart, skilled playmaker that can make terrific passes with the ball in his hands. He also can take the ball to the basket or post up to score, and he is an excellent facilitator that can rack up assists. He also is a solid rebounder and defender. He also shot the ball very well this year, and Cunningham is a very talented player that is currently projected to be a top 3 pick for the 2021 draft.
