Jalen Slawson is an agile, skilled swingman that can make plays with the ball in his hands on offense. He had a solid senior season this year, as he helped lead Furman to get to the 2023 NCAA Tournament, and they were able to reel off an impressive win over Virginia. He doesn’t possess ideal athleticism, but Slawson is a high-motor player that projects well into a 3 and D role in the NBA.
