Tremendous free throw generator

Earl Timberlake is an athletic, energetic combo guard that can comfortably run the point, and he is a solid defender that can lock down his man to get stops for his team. He will need to improve his jump shot and learn to play more under control on offense, but Timberlake’s size, athleticism, and ability to play multiple positions could enable him to go in the late first to the second round range for the 2021 draft.
