Donta Scott is an athletic combo forward that could project into a 3 and D type of role in the NBA. He is shooting the three-ball very well last season as a sophomore. On the other hand, he struggled with his three-point shot this year and he will need to be a more consistent defender in games. Currently, he projects to be a second round candidate for the 2023 draft.
