Sahvir Wheeler is a speedy point guard that played at Georgia before transferring to Kentucky. He is adept at scoring on quick drives to the hoop, and he has shown a reliable jumper this year after struggling with his three-point shot in his first three seasons in college basketball. He is a solid playmaker that can make some creative passes to get assists, but his lack of size could make it difficult for him to score or defend as effectively at higher levels. He is currently a long shot to be drafted, but his solid production at the collegiate level, especially at Kentucky suggests that he could at least end up on an NBA summer league team in the future.
