Summary:

Siyani Chambers is a game manager that generally does a good job of running the team effectively.  He also excels at knocking down threes, and is a better defender than given credit for.

But sometimes he’ll rush his moves, which can lead to missed shots and bad turnovers.  Chambers doesn’t have the size or elite athletic ability that most teams look for out of a point guard, and not much about his game seems to stand out initially.​

But he plays with a lot of heart, and he is a smart player that will compete.  Right now, his limitations may make it tough for him to be drafted, but he could end up on an NBA summer league roster this year or sometime down the road.
