Quincy Guerrier is an athletic, high-motor combo forward that had a solid sophomore season at Syracuse this year. He helped lead Syracuse to get to the 2021 NCAA Tournament. He will need to show NBA teams that he can effectively defend in a man-to-man scheme, and the adjustment from going from a zone to a man-to-man scheme may be a significant one. Guerrier recently announced his intentions to transfer away from Syracuse. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
