Scottie Lewis is a very athletic combo guard that can score and defend when he is on the floor. He is an athletic slasher that can quickly get to the basket, and he is a feisty defender that will apply heavy ball pressure to get steals and stops for his team. He will need to improve his jump shot and cut down on the number of turnovers he commits on offense, and he really just didn’t take enough shots on offense this season.
Lewis played better towards the end of the season, but his inconsistent performances on offense which included a slow start to this season may have led his stock to fall. He will need to be much more assertive on offense, but his strong defensive skills and great athleticism could enable him to be a first round pick in the 2021 draft.
