Combine that with decent touch around the rim, good footwork and shooting mechanics... This seems like a prototypical case of underestimating someone's shooting capabilities.
In addition he has the physical build to hold up in the NBA, has proper footwork to wall off drives, apparently great work ethic and Kentucky has a history of holding back guards (in terms of production and freedom of play).
Why did he fall to 21? Must be something out there that I'm missing. Because this seems like a kid who can instantly play a role in the NBA (small wing) and grow into a bigger role gradually.
I heard he has really bad numbers.
His value of his defense is more on eyetest than on numbers given his low stls and blk rate. Offensively, he has poor shooting % and has low assists numbers.
For me drafting him is more of looking past his numbers, except for his FT%.
