Summary:

Kahlil Whitney is an athletic, high-motor swingman that may project to be a defensive specialist in the NBA. He is a player that will play hard, and his activity on the defensive end will allow him to actively contest and alter shots on that end of the floor. However, he will need to improve his jump shot and ability to consistently make plays on offense, as he is also entirely too turnover prone and doesn’t get enough assists in games. Still, he is a player that could potentially go in the first round, and in a favorable scenario, he could perhaps end up being a solid role player in the league.
