Scouting Report:

RJ Barrett is a crafty scorer that impacts the game in a multitude of ways on the floor. The lefty has an unorthodox game and possesses a very high basketball IQ, which helps him penetrate into the paint and finish with a bevy of moves, including his patented finger-roll. Barrett also does a good job of drawing contact when attacking the basket and finishing through contact despite his slim frame. Barrett will need to put weight on for the next level and improve his outside jump shot to become an elite player, however he has all the tools to become a top-5 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. I see Barrett as a perfect fit at Kansas, where he could utilize his unique skillset to dominate on the wing with his furious downhill attack.
