Gui Santos is an athletic, energetic swingman that was an early entrant in the 2021 NBA Draft, before later withdrawing. He excels at attacking the basket to score on offense, and he is quite adept at taking opponents off the dribble to do so. He consistently plays with a high motor, and he has the ability to guard multiple positions, but he will need to improve his jump shot and his free throw shooting. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect in the 2022 draft.
