Summary:

Jalen Green is a very athletic, skilled basketball player that can score in a variety of ways.  He excels at scoring in transition as well as off cuts, and he can finish numerous plays above the rim.  He also can regularly take opponents off the dribble to score, and he is also a good shooter.  On the other hand, he will need to be a more consistent shooter in games, and he can sometimes will gamble too much defensively. 

Green had a very good season this year with the G-League Ignite, and he was able to help them get to the G-League playoffs this year. He is a very talented prospect that projects to be a likely top 5 pick in the 2021 draft.
