2021 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 52
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Decent shooter, especially from deep
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Moves fairly well off the ball
Decent rebounder for his size
Struggles to create his own shot
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Not an elite ball handler, can be turnover prone
Can have lapses defensively
John Petty is an athletic, skilled swingman that projects to be a shooting specialist in the NBA. He is a good three-point shooter that moves well off the ball, and he also can run off screens to make shots from long-distance.
He also does a fairly good job of using off-ball movement to get additional scores on offense. However, he will need to improve in the other facets of the game. Right now, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
