Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Solid shooter, especially from deep
Decent scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adept at collecting steals
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Can struggle to score in traffic
Can play too wildly on offense
Unselfish to a fault
Needs to improve his rebounding
May be a bit undersized at the point
Davion Mitchell is a very athletic, pass-first point guard that is having a very good junior season for Baylor. He played very well in his team’s win over Illinois, as he scored 15 points, made 4 threes, and he also had 7 assists, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals to lead his team to the victory.
Though he didn’t really shoot the ball very well in his first two seasons, he’s off to a terrific start this year. His strong play this season has drawn attention from NBA teams and scouts, and he is currently a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
