Lacks an elite first step off the dribble

Summary:

Mojave King is a skilled scoring combo guard that can make shots in a variety of ways.  He is a solid 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.  Currently, he projects to go in the late first to the second round range for the 2021 draft.
