Pros:

Adequate scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Can post up smaller players
Good rebounder
Fairly good defender
Gifted athlete
May have significant upside

 
Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
May need to tweak his shooting mechanics
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Needs to improve his passing ability
Not an elite ball handler
Can play too wildly on offense

Summary:

Nassir Little is an athletic, skilled swingman that could be a potential top 5 pick in 2019.  He is a scorer who on his good days can attack the basket at will to get buckets, and he also has some defensive skills.​

However, he will need to improve his jump shot and passing ability, and he’s had his fair share of struggles in a bench role this season for North Carolina, but Little is a talented player who could end up going in the lottery on draft day.
