J.D. Notae

Updated on 5/14/22.  Written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-2
Weight: 190
College: Arkansas
Classification: Fifth-Year Senior
Birthdate: 10/27/1998

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Adequate playmaker
Good rebounder for his size
Solid defender that can get steals
Good athlete
Good motor

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can be too scoring focused on offense
Can play too wildly on offense
Can be undisciplined defensively
Not a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two

Summary:

J.D. Notae is a speedy, very athletic combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He is a microwave type of scorer that can put up points in a hurry, and he can score in bunches.  On the downside, he can tend to be quite streaky with his jump shot, and he doesn’t often look to pass the basketball.  Notae scored 28 points in his team’s February 8th OT win over Auburn, and he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
