Shamorie Ponds is an agile, skilled playmaker that can shoot and score the basketball. Though he can be streaky with his jump shot, Ponds has been known to have some really stellar scoring performances, as he can put up points in a hurry. Overall, Ponds had a solid junior season, and he could end up being a good find for a team in the 2019 draft.
