Ty-Shon Alexander – G – Creighton
- Knockdown three point shooter who can fire off shots off the catch, in pick-and-roll situations, or when coming off of screens.
- Can play on the ball and make plays or reserve himself to a spot-up role. He can fit in with any NBA roster.
- Great defender who plays incredibly hard at all times. He would often guard some of the best guards college had to offer.
- Potentially versatile player who has size combined with length alongside his high effort and motor.
- Great on-ball defender, but is also attentive off ball and can jump passing lanes to create fastbreak opportunities.
- Hard working player with a great character.
- His biggest weakness at the moment is his really poor finishing. This will need to improve if he wants to be able to attack the basket off the catch.
- Has an average handle at best and will need to work on that to be able to make plays off the dribble.
- Doesn’t possess the passing vision that you’d like for a point guard so he’ll likely be a near full-time two guard in the NBA.
- Already 22 years old so his ceiling may be questioned.
Ty-Shon Alexander is my gem of the draft. This is a guy who plays extremely hard on both ends of the court, fits in seamlessly with any team, and makes winning plays. He can hit threes in a variety of different ways and he can make plays off the dribble. He’s also an extremely high level defender who has length, versatility, strength, and a high motor. 3&D combo guards are always going to have a place in this league, and Alexander has shown that his game is NBA ready.
