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.
