Kennedy Chandler can hoop. He passes the eye test with flying colors, but his lack of size and strength could hurt his NBA Draft stock. As a freshman, Chandler was named Second-Team All-SEC, SEC All-Freshman Team, and SEC Tournament MVP. That’s quite a long resumé for a one-and-done player.
Although he might need some seasoning in the G League next season, Chandler has potential as a point guard. His strong feel in the pick-and-roll and flashes of three-point shooting are two reasons why scouts are taking notice. Like any prospect, he comes with a few concerns, but he’s firmly in the conversation as a first-round pick right now.
