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 drew considerable buzz over the course of the season, and he played well against some quality competition. He currently projects to be a late first round pick for the 2023 draft.
