Landry Shamet is a smart, skilled point guard that can shoot and pass the basketball. He can steadily run the point, but he may lack elite physical tools, so he not have as much upside as some of the upper echelon point guard prospects in this draft class. But as he had a solid sophomore season, he has a chance to end up going in the first round in 2018.
