Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Decent scorer off the dribble
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can play too wildly on offense
Can be undisciplined defensively
A bit undersized for his position
Nolan Hickman is an agile, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He is a gifted ball handler that can get to anywhere he wants on the court, and he has a wealth of ball-handling moves that he can use to score off the dribble. He also can ably run the point, but he will need to improve his defensive skills. He was too inconsistent at times this season, but he is a skilled player that could be a prospect to watch for the 2024 draft.
