Well, so much for draft fireworks. Or, maybe they’re fireworks, but they aren’t coming in real time. I’m typing this 15 minutes before the draft is scheduled to start, and yet the first five picks appear to be in place.
Garland is a 6’2”, 175 pound score-first point guard that projects as an excellent shooter off the bounce. He only played five games at Vanderbilt due to injury, and recorded more turnovers than assists. His pedigree is quite good, and he scored at an extremely efficient rate. How he would fit with Collin Sexton will be an open question. It’s unclear what sort of defender Garland projects as.
We’ll keep everything as updated as possible throughout the night.
