Nickeil Alexander-Walker is a skilled swingman that can shoot and score the basketball. He is a good shooter, especially from beyond the arc, and he also is an adequate playmaker that can be a facilitator when he is on the court. Right now, Alexander-Walker is having a very good sophomore season, and his skills could make him a lottery pick in 2019.
