Pros:

Solid shooter, especially from deep

Summary:

Maxwell Lewis is a tall swingman that projects well into a 3 and D role at the NBA level. In a quick glance of his data from Synergy, he’s shooting the ball really well, is a terrific scorer in transition, and can get steals and blocks. He’ll need to show that he can be a reliable scorer in half-court sets, and that he can defend the best players on a consistent basis. He’s been drawing noticeable buzz recently, and while he doesn’t play at a big-time Division I school, NBA teams and scouts will want to know how well he fares against top teams such as Gonzaga.
