    Tyrese Maxey

    College: Kentucky
    Position: SG/PG
    Age: 19
    Height: 6-foot-3
    Weight: 200 pounds
    Draft Range: 12 to 22

    Why: Can smoothly pull up for jumpers off the dribble. Shot 83.3% at the line. Creative in the lane; can score at a variety of angles. Good at changing speeds. Plus ball-handling ability makes it possible he could develop into a point guard. Defensively, he's advanced for his age. Has a strong body and uses it well. Defense is NBA-ready at both guard positions. Provides fast, physical help defense. Like Keldon Johnson, some of his potential might be hidden by the fact he had to share the ball with so many quality players at Kentucky as a freshman.

    Why Not: Hit only 29.2% of his three-pointers and less than a third of his jumpers overall. Has a low release that might not translate to the NBA, which makes his future as a shooter a big question mark despite his impressive free throw percentage. Not too much of an athlete. His top-end speed is pedestrian and doesn't jump notably well. Though he's crafty, lack of elite athleticism could make it difficult to finish in the NBA. He's not a ballhog but his court vision was rudimentary as a freshman. Good wingspan (6-foot-7) but his height will hurt his defensive potential if he turns out to be a 2 and not a 1 or at least a combo guard.

    Spurs Fit: Like Keldon Johnson, Maxey could use time in the G League to help expand his game and figure out what exactly his role will be as a pro.

    You made, what, like 20 of these already? I swear 2/3 of them have been undersized combo guards. Not your fault, but I wished the talent pool was a little more diversed on projected first round prospects. Not gonna lie, outside of Edwards I didn't even care to check for any of these combo guards footage, tbh.
