Pros:

Good shooter, especially from deep
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on the move
Adequate playmaker
Moves well off the ball on offense
Adequate defender
Above average athlete

Cons:

Lacks an elite first step off the dribble

Not an elite ball handler
Needs to improve his rebounding
Struggles to defend quicker players
Not an elite athlete

Summary:

Kellan Grady is a skilled combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He is a crafty scorer off the dribble, he can score off of cuts, and he also can knock down threes.  He is not overwhelmingly athletic though, and he will need to show that he can hold his own against elite competition.  Recently, Grady transferred to Kentucky, and that is a good acquisition for them. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
