James Bouknight is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He thrives at taking the ball to the rack to score, and he also excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays. He will need to improve his jump shot and defense, but he is solid offensive player that could be a first round pick in the 2021 draft.
