G/F • 6’6, 226 lbs; 3rd year, Baylor

UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: ALL-AROUND WING

 

UTA’s Royce O’Neale: an all-around wing who trends towards defense & hustle; diamond in the rough: came outta nowhere (in 2017), made immediate difference as an undrafted rook*; sequence defender, always has hands in passing lanes looking to turn mistakes into points; ball movement is on the upswing: O’Neale will look for the extra pass before considering his own shot most times; not a great scorer OTD, better suited as a slasher & off ball shooter (more volume coming from deep? - shot 36% on less than 2 attempts/game in Year 1); solid corner driver, attacks closeouts hard; great chemistry w/ Donovan Mitchell - good defensive complement, can stick 1s-3s; gained valuable experience during playoff run a year ago, continued improvement in sophomore year?


*declared for the draft in 2015 - played in Germany, Spain & Lithuania before making UTA in 2017
