Josh Giddey is a smart, skilled point forward that can run the team at the point or play off the ball. He can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and his offensive skills and versatility can certainly help an NBA team at the next level. He is currently playing well in the NBL right now, and he currently projects to go in the late first to the second round range for the 2021 draft.
