Taking a look at De’Andre Hunters underrated rookie season

De’Andre Hunter had a good rookie season for the Atlanta Hawks and flashed potential to be a really good player in this league for years to come. At just 22 years old, Hunter still has so much room to grow. The 6-foot-7, 225-lb small forward has great defensive instincts and really good shooting mechanics, a recipe for an elite level 3-and-D wing in the NBA.

Before coming into the league Hunter was compared to the likes of OG Anunoby, Luol Deng and other 3-and-D wings. These comparisons still seem fairly accurate after his rookie season.
