Summary:
Quincy Guerrier is an athletic, high-motor combo forward that 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. He also will need to be a much more consistent outside shooter in games.  Currently, Guerrier projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2024 draft.
