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 will need to improve his jump shot, but Cunningham is a very talented player that is currently projected to be a top 3 pick for the 2021 draft.
