Drew McDonald is a skilled combination forward that has been very productive for Northern Kentucky this season. He’s averaged 19 points, about 9 1/2 rebounds, and almost 3 assists per game while making nearly 41% of his threes for his team.
He’s been a major reason why his team has played well, and he’s helped lead them to the NCAA Tournament this year. Though he has not drawn much, if any draft buzz, McDonald may have the skills to end up making an NBA team’s summer league roster.
