Jalen Johnson is a very athletic, skilled point forward whose versatility and solid set of all-around skills could enable him to be a likely lottery pick in the 2021. He is a strong facilitator that sees the floor well, and he also thrives at scoring in transition as well as in the post on offense. He will need to improve his jump shot and defensive skills, but he has the skills to end up being a solid player in the NBA.
