Josh Minott is an athletic, high-motor forward that excels at making plays around the basket on both ends of the floor. He hasn’t had to take many outside shots or to handle the ball very much, but he’s been very efficient as an inside scorer, and he also has excelled as a rebounder and shot blocker for the Memphis Tigers. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2022 NBA draft.
