Julian Strawther is an athletic, skilled sharpshooter that can shoot and score the basketball.  He is a reliable outside shooter that can consistently make shots from deep, and he’s helped Gonzaga consistently reel off wins in the past two seasons.  He will need to improve his shot-creation skills, passing ability, and defense, but his ability to shoot the basketball could enable him to be a second round pick in the 2023 draft.
