Jericole Hellems is a swingman that may project into a shooting specialist role in the NBA. Recently, he was invited to play at the Portsmouth Invitational. He had a fairly good tournament there, and he especially played well in his first game at that event. Plus, he also played very well in the first game of the 2022 NTX Combine. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
