Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Decent scorer off the dribble
Solid mid-range shooter
Solid rebounder for his size
Above average athlete
Needs to improve his three-point shot
Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Can be too scoring focused on offense
Can tend to force the issue too much on offense
Can have lapses defensively
A bit undersized for his position
Jahmir Young is an agile, skilled point guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He is quite adept at scoring from the mid-range, and he is a skilled scorer off the dribble that can capably knock down shots. He’ll need to improve his three-point shot and show that he can reliably run the point at higher levels, as his assist totals are not as high as it should be. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2023 draft.
