Projected Draft Range: Late 1st to 2nd Round

Pros:

Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Decent playmaker
Very good rebounder
Solid defender
Gifted athlete

Cons:

Must extend his shooting range
Needs to improve his shooting
Needs to improve his free throw shooting

Summary:

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.
