Jordan Schakel is a skilled, sharpshooter that can really knock down shots to provide floor spacing for his team on offense. He is an excellent marksman from beyond the arc, and he is also a tremendous free throw shooter. While he will need to improve his passing and ball handling skills, Schakel’s strong ability to knock down jumpers could allow him to land a roster spot in the NBA.
