Santiago Vescovi

Updated as of 9/19/2022, scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-3
Weight: 191
College: Tennessee
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 9/14/2001

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Solid shooter, especially from deep
Decent scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent playmaker
Adequate rebounder for his size
Has very good intangibles

Cons:

Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Can be streaky with his jump shot
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Struggles to guard quicker players
Only an average athlete

Summary:

Santiago Vescovi is a smart, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball.  He played very well for Uruguay’s National Team in the NBA G-League International Challenge, and he joined Tennessee midway to replace injured starting point guard, Lamonte Turner.

Vescovi had a fairly solid freshman season, as he excelled at making shots, but he also committed turnovers at an alarming rate.  Though he possesses just average athletic gifts, he can shoot the basketball, and he seems to have a solid feel for the game.  He will need to be a more consistent playmaker and improve his defense.  Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2023 draft.
