Jordan Burns

Updated on 7/31/21.  Written by Alan Lu.
2021 rankings were finalized on 7/29/21.

Height: 6-0
Weight: 187
College: Colgate
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 8/28/1997

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:
Solid shooter, especially from deep
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Very good free throw shooter
Adequate playmaker
Adequate rebounder for his size
Above average athlete

Cons:
Struggles to score in traffic
May struggle to adjust to a reduced role on offense
Undersized for his position
Can have lapses defensively
Old for a draft prospect, may have limited upside
Has limited experience against top competition

Summary:
He is an agile, skilled playmaker that can shoot and score the basketball. He scored 32 points and made 8 three-pointers in a first-round game in his team’s loss to Tennessee in the 2019 NCAA Tournament. Burns may lack ideal size for his position, but he can certainly put up points in a hurry, and he could project to be a solid backup point guard in the NBA.
