Troy Baxter is a very athletic swingman that can make solid plays on both ends of the floor.  He is a terrific athlete that can easily score in transition, and he also has versatile scoring skills.  On the downside, he can be prone to hoisting up questionable shots, and he also can tend to be turnover prone on offense.  Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate in the 2021 draft.
