SUMMARY

Aaron Nesmith is coming off a solid freshman campaign where he averaged 11 points per game and 5.5 rebounds.

Nesmith has the positional size and athleticism NBA teams look for in a 3 & wing. He's a capable shooter from 3 (59 3 pointers on 33.7% FG) and is at his best on off the ball motion plays. He's a decent passer and can attack close outs on straight line drives to the rim using.

Nesmith is off to a big start in his sophomore season, averaging 26.7 points, 6 rebounds per game on 62% shooting. He' shooting a blistering 56.7%  (17-30) from 3 with most of his attempts coming off pin downs and down screens. I'm expecting a huge jump in production this season and believe Nesmith will be a 1st round pick next June.
