Nate Darling is a smart, skilled swingman that can really shoot and score the basketball. He is a sharpshooter that can knock down shots from all over the floor, and he has a lot of range on his shot, as he is in’t afraid to let it fly. The Canadian-born guard also can score off of drives and cuts to the hoop. On the other had, he only possesses average physical tools, and he will need to improve his defense. Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2020 draft.
