Updated on 6/25/22.  Written by Alan Lu.
2022 Rankings were finalized on 6/23/22.

Height: 6-3
Weight: 195
College: Kentucky
Classification: Freshman
Birthdate: 11/15/2002

2022 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 15
Projected Draft Range: Mid 1st Round
2022 NBA Draft: Round 1, Pick 29 by the Memphis Grizzlies
(Rights traded to the Houston Rockets)


Pros:
Solid scorer off the dribble
Decent shooter
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Solid playmaker
Decent rebounder for his size
Adequate defender that can get steals
Good athlete

Cons:
Streaky shooter
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can be reluctant to take threes
Can play too wildly on offense
Can be too scoring focused on offense
Tendency to over-dribble, which can lead to turnovers
Struggles to guard taller players

Summary:
TyTy Washington is an athletic, skilled playmaker that can score the basketball in a variety of ways and also run the team with the ball in his hands.  He will need to show that he can consistently shoot and defend well. After having a poor Champions Classic showing at the start of the season, he’s played very well since. He’s a fleet-footed guard whose offensive skills and upside may make him a solid candidate to go in the mid first round in the 2022 draft.
