Michigan State’s Cassius Winston is not as well-regarded as some of the players we’ve covered so far, but few players in the draft can boast the combination of production and success he did in college. Senior year stats: 18.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 44.8/43.2/85.2 shooting splits
What to like
Cassius Winston is an outrageously good shooter with great indicators all across the board. These sort of shots are routine for Winston, and they have no right to be:
The strongest case I can make for Winston as a Sixers draftee is that he is one of few guys in the class with a claim to potentially elite skill. With most opponents focused on his pull-up shooting ability, Winston tends to have larger passing windows to work with and he’s excellent at taking advantage, particularly out of the pick-and-roll.
