2021 rankings were finalized on 7/29/21.
College: West Virginia
2021 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 33
Projected Draft Range: Late 1st to 2nd Round
2021 NBA Draft: Round 2, Pick 36 by the Oklahoma City Thunder
(Rights traded to the New York Knicks)
Good shooter, especially from deep
Decent scorer off the dribble
Adequate rebounder for his size
Solid 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 second round of the 2021 draft.
