Yves Pons is an athletic, energetic swingman that could project to be a 3 and D type of player in the NBA. Though he is a fairly low volume player on offense, Pons is an efficient scorer that can make mid-range shots and finish plays above the rim, and he also is a good shot blocker on the defensive end. He will need to be a more consistent shooter from long-range and also improve his playmaking ability, but Pons is a talented player that projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
