Projected Draft Range: Lottery
Solid scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Tremendous free throw generator
Fairly good rebounder for his size
Solid defender that can get steals and blocks
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Can be undisciplined defensively
Not a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two
Jalen Suggs is a very athletic, skilled basketball player that can score in a variety of ways, and he can finish numerous plays above the rim. He is also a rangy defender that can collect plenty of steals and blocks, and he can cover a lot of ground defensively. Sometimes though, he also can tend to force the issue too much, which can lead him to commit turnovers. Still, Suggs is a talented prospect that could be a likely lottery pick in the 2021 draft.
