Scoot Henderson is a very athletic, tremendously skilled playmaker that could be a cornerstone player of an NBA franchise. He is a tremendously athletic point guard that 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 need to improve his jump shot, but regardless, he had a sterling career during his time with the G-League Ignite. Henderson has all the makings to be an NBA superstar in the future and he will likely be a top 3 pick in the 2023 draft.
