Peyton Aldridge is a skilled, combo forward that can shoot and score the basketball. He has helped lead Davidson to win the A-10 conference tournament as well as to an NCAA Tournament berth, where his team earned the 12 seed to face off against Kentucky in the 1st round.
While he’s a virtual unknown in NBA draft circles, he’s averaged 22 points, 8 rebounds, and has made roughly 40% of his threes, as that could help build his case to get invited to Portsmouth at the end of the season.
