Dillon Mitchell is a very athletic, energetic combo forward that excels at attacking the hoop to score and rebound the basketball. He is an energetic, high-motor player that can certainly finish plays above the rim, but he will really need to improve his jump shot, and he will need to expand his skill set offensively. Currently, he projects to go in the second round range for the 2024 draft.
