College: North Carolina
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Crafty scorer off the dribble
Good rebounder for his size
Decent defender that can get steals
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can be too scoring focused on offense
Can be undisciplined defensively
Not a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two
Kerwin Walton is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He can knock down pull-up jumpers effortlessly, and he can get all the way to the rim to score around the basket and also finish through contact. He also is an aggressive defender that will get steals in games. He may need to show teams that he can capably run the point at higher levels, but his solid ability to knock down shots combined with his athleticism could enable him to quickly move up draft boards sometime down the road.
