Projected Draft Range: Mid 1st Round
2017 NBA Draft: Round 1, Pick 13 by the Denver Nuggets (Rights Traded to the Utah Jazz)
Good scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on the move
Decent shooter from all over the floor
Very good free throw shooter
Fairly good defensive player that can rack up steals
Can be prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can be foul prone
Not a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two
Can be inconsistent in games
Donovan Mitchell is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can really score the basketball. He has a wide array of ball handling moves, and he has the speed, agility, and body control to regularly finish plays around the basket. Plus, he can really get going when he knocks down jumpers.
On the other hand, he can be streaky with his jump shot, and he may be in between positions. But he is having a solid sophomore season as he has played well in big games against Indiana and Duke, and Mitchell could likely end up getting selected in the first round of the upcoming draft.
2/13/17 Louisville vs. Syracuse
