J’Wan Roberts is an athletic, high-motor combo forward that excels at making hustle plays to help his team in games. He’ll need to improve his perimeter skills, especially since he may be quite undersized to play inside at the NBA level, but his ability to make hustle plays could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA in the future.
