Marcus Keene is a heavy score first combo guard that can really score the basketball, as he was the NCAA scoring leader in the 2016-17 regular season this past year. But as he has been a ball dominant scorer in college, he will need to show that he can run the point and defend his position at the next level.
For the time being, he may rate as a borderline second round draft prospect, but it is possible that he could end up being a good find for a team in this league, as he may draw comparisons to former NBA veteran, Chucky Atkins.
