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 will pull up to knock down jumpers. However, he will need to make outside shots more efficiently, and he’s been too prone to missing his free throws. Currently, he is a very talented prospect that projects to be a likely top 5 pick in the 2021 draft.
