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.
