Good size to play either backcourt position

Summary:

Xavier Rathan-Mayes is a skilled combo guard that excels at attacking the basket to garner scores. He is a good scorer off the dribble, and he has the speed and quickness to regularly get into the lane.  Plus, he can be a good playmaker when he decides to play within the team system.​

On the other hand, Rathan-Mayes has been an inconsistent shooter over the years, and he has not shot as well as expected of him when he first came into college.  He is also not a top-flight athlete, but he may have the size and athletic ability to perhaps be a capable defender at the next level.​

RIght now, he may be a borderline second round candidate.  Mayes may be skilled enough to play in the NBA, but he does not have a whole lot of draft buzz at the moment.  If he shows that he can shoot and run the point effectively, he could end up being a decent role player in this league.
