Josh Christopher

Updated on 4/6/21.  Written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 215
College: Arizona State
Classification: Freshman
Birthdate: 12/8/2001

2021 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 29
Projected Draft Range: Late 1st to 2nd Round

Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Adequate playmaker
Good rebounder for his size
Adequate defender
Adept at collecting steals
Very good athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can struggle to score in traffic
Can tend to be a bit of a ball stopper
Can be too ball dominant
Can be undisciplined defensively

Summary:

Josh Christopher is a very athletic combo guard that can take the ball to the rim to score the basketball, and he can finish plays above the rim.  He’ll need to improve his jump shot and he can tend to force up too many rushed shots, which can hurt his shooting percentages.  Still, he is a talented prospect that could be a first round pick in 2021.
