Grant Golden is a smart, skilled big man that is one of the best passing big men in college basketball.  He doesn’t have elite physical tools, but his high basketball IQ enables him to thrive as an offensive player in games.  He will need to show that he can consistently excel against more athletic players and he will need to be a consistent floor spacer at higher levels, but Golden’s basketball IQ and intangibles could allow him to make a team’s roster in the NBA.
