College: West Virginia
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round
Good shooter, especially from deep
Decent scorer off the dribble
Adequate rebounder for his size
Decent defender that can get steals
Can be too scoring focused on offense
May struggle to guard taller players
May not be a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two
Miles McBride is an agile, skilled sharpshooting combo guard that can make shots from all over the floor. He is having a very good sophomore season, and he is a prolific scorer that can put up points in a hurry, and he scored 12 of his 21 points in the last 4 minutes of his team’s January 4th win over Oklahoma State.
On the other hand, he can be a bit streaky with his jump shot and he may need to show teams that he can effectively run the point, but he is a very good shooter whose ability to score the basketball could make him a solid pick in the late first to the second round range of the 2021 draft.
