Matthew Strazel is a smart, skilled point guard that is an effective game manager, and he can reliable run the point with the ball in his hands. He is a solid marksman that excels at knocking down shots from beyond the arc, and he is an unselfish player that can rack up assists on offense. He does not possess elite physical tools and can struggle to consistently create his own shot or defend taller players, but his ability to make shots and decisions on the floor could enable him to end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
