Ricky Council IV is an athletic, energetic swingman that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He has a quick first step that enables him to score on strong drives to the hoop, and he also can make hustle plays on both ends of the floor. He’ll need to improve his outside shot, especially as his three-point percentages have taken a nosedive in recent years, but if he can continue to progress and hone his game, he could project to be a solid role player in the NBA.
