Derek St. Hilaire is a very athletic point guard that can score the basketball.  He is a speedy player that can quickly get to the rim, and he can make an assortment of shots off the dribble.  On the downside, he doesn’t get many assists for a player his size, and while he shows the potential to be able to effectively play the point, he will need to show NBA teams that he can reliably run the point at higher levels.  He also didn’t shoot the three-ball nearly as well as he did when he was a junior, so he will need to regain his shooting touch from the outside. He had a solid showing at the 2022 Reese’s College All-Star Game, and he could project into a backup point guard role in the NBA.
