Zavier Simpson is a tough, gritty playmaker that can effectively run a team at the point.  He is having a good senior season this year, as he’s helped lead his team to many wins so far.  On the other hand, he may not be an especially dynamic playmaker, and he can be too passive on offense at times.  Right now, he may be a borderline second round candidate for the 2020 draft, and he could project to be a backup point guard in the NBA.
