75 points and 14 steals for Duarte in his last 3 games. Loooong 6-6 guard with touch, slithery off the bounce, range, deceptively rangy defensively due to his length and hands. Skinny -- physically a lot like Klay Thompson at this stage. Always looking for breakout guys and this is absolutely one. Eating the PAC-12 alive. FRP no question, imo, but his shot release is not as quick/pro-ready as Thompson's was.

Another breakout player like that is Jared Butler from Baylor (almost said Jared Baylor from Butler). Junior combo guard who reminds me of a young George Hill - though I don't know if he'll pout in a pandemic situation. :wink: https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/jared-butler-1.html He made a very smart decision to not go in the 2020 draft and has improved dramatically. Right now, mocks have him as a 2nd rounder, but I'm guessing he'll go long before the Bucks pick. I could be wrong though - because of his in-between size - at 6'3 190 - and not being a real PG.
