Matt Mitchell is a tough, mobile swingman that could make solid plays on both ends of the floor. He was on one of the best teams in the country, and he showed a significantly improved outside shot last year as a junior.
Right now, he’s struggled to make threes this year, but Mitchell has been able to draw many free throws, and he’s also defended well when he is on the court. Right now, he is a borderline second round candidate for the 2021 draft, and he could project to be a 3 and D type of role player in the NBA.
