Decent shooter

Summary:

Rayan Rupert is an agile, skilled swingman that excels at making hustle plays to help his team on both ends of the floor.  He can ably create his own shot to score off the bounce, and he also will get steals at a high rate.  On the downside, he can sometimes struggle with his jumper, and he can tend to make bad gambles and be out of position defensively. 

He recently signed on to play in the NBL, and Rupert played really well in all three games that he played in the 2022 NBL Blitz. He has improved his outside shot significantly, and has been stellar in preseason so far. Rupert is a very talented prospect that could end up being a lottery pick in the 2023 draft.
