NBA ROLE: (RAW) TWO-WAY COMBO GUARD

 

Nickeil Alexander-Walker has nice two-way potential: sequence defender w/ the ability to make plays; pressure defender - in the mix for blocks & steals outta the backcourt; loves to go hard to the rim, uses size to gain an advantage going to the cup, can finish w/ either hand; operates well outta the PnR (natural passer), needs to add an effective midrange pull-up to threaten from all 3 levels; future post game?; consistent shooter from deep? - shoots a high-arching J, best when spotting up; primary backup G role in 2020 or in a fight for spot minutes?* - NAW fits new wave of Pelicans basketball, could thrive playing an uptempo setting

*efficiency is important early on
