Jalen Suggs Scouting Report

August 3, 2021 R. C. Harris 0

Though the Magic were already well stocked with guards, the team had to be pleased that Suggs fell to No. 5 overall in the NBA Draft.  There is so much to like about Suggs, the best pure point guard in the 2021 draft class.  He is an excellent all-round athlete, who also has a high basketball IQ.  He is tough and scrappy, and yet graceful [ . . . ]
