Josh Hart is a smart, skilled basketball player that may have what it takes to succeed in the NBA, as he is a highly skilled offensive player that helped his team win the 2016 National Championship. Because of this, Hart could be a potential first round pick in the upcoming draft.
He is a versatile scorer that can do so in multiple ways. He is a shifty guard that can get many buckets off the dribble, and he also excels at scoring in transition. Plus, Hart is a very good shooter that can make shots from all over the floor to space the floor for his team.
Also, he is a solid playmaker. He passes and handles the ball quite well, and he tends to make sound decisions on offense.
Hart had a strong junior season that was punctuated by a fantastic NCAA Tournament. He will look to build off of last season’s momentum to build a bigger wave to boost his draft stock.
He might be one of the more polished prospects in this year’s draft. As a result, Josh Hart could be a likely late first to second round pick and could eventually develop into a solid role player in the NBA.
