Summary:

Nate Hinton is an athletic swingman that has recently declared to enter the 2020 NBA Draft.  He is a fairly good shooter that can knock down spot-up jumpers off the catch.  He also rebounds the ball well, especially for a player his size.  On the downside, he can struggle to consistently create his own shot off the dribble, and he can sometimes tend to be unfocused defensively.  Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the upcoming draft.
