Updated on 12/3/21.  Written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-2
Weight: 185
Country: USA (Marietta, GA)
Professional Team: G-League Ignite
Classification: Non-College Draft Prospect
Birthdate: 2/3/2004

Projected Draft Range: Top 5

Pros:

Very good scorer off the dribble
Decent shooter, especially from the mid-range
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent playmaker
Solid rebounder for his size
Decent defender that can get steals
Very good athlete

Cons:

Needs to adjust to the longer three-point line
Can be prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Can be unfocused defensively
May struggle more against taller players
May be a bit undersized for his position

Summary:

Scoot Henderson is an agile, skilled playmaker that can shoot and pass the basketball.  He can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he is a very good ball handler that can comfortably run the point.  He’ll likely need to take some time to get used to the longer three-point line that is at the G-League level.  Currently, Henderson projects to be a top 5 pick in the 2023 draft.
