Mojave King is a skilled scoring combo guard that can make shots in a variety of ways. He is a talented shooter that excels at knocking down shots off the catch and can also run off screens, and he also is an unselfish player that can set up scores for his teammates. He will need to improve his defense, and he may need to show that he can effectively run the point at higher levels. He didn’t play much in the NBL during the 2020-21 season, and he struggled to shoot or play well in limited playing time. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect in the 2022 draft.
