Julian Strawther is an athletic, skilled scorer that can make shots in a variety of ways. He has solid strength that allows him to get numerous scores off the dribble and in the post, and he excels at finishing plays in the paint to score the basketball. He will need to improve his passing ability and jump shot, but his ability to make shots and put up points in a hurry could enable him to be a second round pick sometime down the road.
