Summary:

J.D. Davison is a very athletic, skilled playmaker that can make plenty of highlight-reel worthy plays on both ends of the floor.  He is a gifted scorer off the dribble, and he has a knack for scoring on fast breaks.  He also can throw down mesmerizing dunks, and he also can roam in to make a high-flying block defensively.  He also has a solid mid-range jump shot that can keep defenses honest, and he can capably run the point.

On the other hand, he still needs to improve his jump shot, particularly from behind the three-point line, and his free throw shooting still needs work.  He can tend to over-dribble, which can lead him to commit turnovers, and he also can tend to have lapses defensively.  Davison is a very talented player, and his strong ability to make plays on both ends of the floor may make him a good bet to go in the lottery in the 2022 draft.
