Dereon Seabron is an athletic, energetic swingman that had a good season this year at NC State. He is a player who fills up the stat sheet, and he is an aggressive slasher that will drive hard to the hoop to score the basketball. He also has the physical tools to be a solid defender at the NBA level. On the other hand, he can tend to be too predictable on offense, and his extreme reluctance to take outside shots can lead defenders to key in on his drives to force misses. Currently, Seabron is a second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
