Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted​

Pros:

Solid scorer off the dribble

Fairly good shooter from all over the floor

Excels at scoring on the move

Handles the ball well

Adequate defensive player

Very good athlete

Cons:

Must improve his playmaking skills

Can be too scoring focused on offense

Needs to improve his rebounding

Summary:

Marcus Foster is an athletic, combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball.  He will really need to improve his playmaking skills, as he may lack the ability to effectively run the point at this stage due to not possessing great court vision.​

But Foster can put up points in a hurry, and he is also a solid athlete that can help his team get stops defensively.  With his skill set, he could be a potential second round pick in 2018.
