Gary Trent Jr. is a tough, physical swingman that can put the ball in the hoop. He is a gifted shooter that can score the basketball, and he is a player that is unafraid of taking shots regardless of the time and situation. He will also need to show teams that he can consistently excel on defense. But with his ability to get buckets, Gary Trent Jr. could be a potential first round pick this year.
