Jarron Cumberland is a tough, physical player that is a solid facilitator with the ball in his hands, and he can also score the basketball in a variety of ways. He is a tall ball handler that can comfortably run the point, and he can also put up points in a hurry.
On the downside, he struggled to consistently knock down jump shots this season, as his shooting percentages were considerably down from last season. He may not be elite at any one skill, but he could project to be a 3 and D type of player in the association, and he may end up being a second round pick in the 2020 draft.
