Weight: 204
College: Tennessee
Classification: Freshman
Birthdate: 9/5/2000

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Decent shooter, especially from deep
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Decent playmaker
Decent rebounder
Above average athlete

 
Cons:

Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Does not draw enough free throws
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Unselfish to a fault
Can be unfocused defensively
Not an elite athlete

Summary:

Josiah James is an athletic swingman that can pass and rebound the basketball. He is a player that may project to be a defensive specialist at the next level, but he will need to improve his jump shot, shot selection, and assertiveness on the offensive end.  Right now, he may be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
