Jonathan Isaac is a skilled, multi-faceted forward that could potentially be the ideal player for teams in today’s modern NBA. He has a very good jump shot, has terrific length and athletic abilities, and he also projects to defend well at the next level.
He needs to add more strength and improve his ability to create his own shot off the dribble. But with his skill set, Isaac could end up being one of the best players in the upcoming draft, as he possesses a unique skill package that could create mismatches that can swing it in his favor.
