Now, the Hoosiers’ leading scorer is following suit.
James Blackmon Jr.:
Anunoby (health permitting) will be a first-round pick. Bryant is more likely to land in the second round.
Blackmon might go undrafted, though someone could take a flier on him in the second round. He’s an excellent outside shooter, and teams would like to find a place for players with that skill.
It won’t be easy with Blackmon. He’s 6-foot-3 without much athleticism or playmaking ability. Can he shoot well enough to be a poor-defending, one-dimensional shooting guard? That’s a tall order. So is him developing complementary skills without better physical tools.
