Shake Milton is a tall, athletic combo guard that could be a potential first round pick in the upcoming draft. He is a gifted ball handler that can make jumpers or get scores off the dribble, and he is also a table setter that looks for his teammates first.
But, he can also be too passive on offense, as he can be too content to hang in the background at times. Also, he can be quite inconsistent with his jump shot, as that combined with his lack of assertiveness could make him struggle more offensively at the next level.
Right now, he is an intriguing prospect. Milton is a skilled basketball player that can significantly help a team on offense, and he could end up being a first round pick in 2018.
