Grant Riller is an athletic, skilled combo guard that does a fairly good job of taking his man off the dribble to score the basketball. He can put up points in a hurry, and he could be an instant offense type of player for NBA teams.
Right now, he needs to improve his three-point shot, show that he can effectively run the point, and show that he can guard upper echelon players on a consistent basis, but Riller is a shot maker that could potentially make an NBA team’s roster at the next level.
