Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Decent shooter

Very good athlete

Cons:

Inconsistent shooter

Shot selection issues

Lacks an elite first step off the dribble

Summary:

Lamar Peters is an athletic point guard that opened plenty of eyes at the Adidas Nations Tournament in 2018, and Peters is a versatile scorer that can quickly get into lane, and he is a fairly good facilitator that can run pick and rolls for his team.​

Big things were expected of Peters last season, but he had a disappointing sophomore year.  But right now, he’s played much better, and he played very well against Clemson recently in which he scored 28 points and made 8 threes in a win over them.  Peters is a talented, but inconsistent player, and he may project to be a second round prospect for the upcoming draft.​
