2020 Draft Profile - Cassius Winston

Jeremy Woo - Sept. 16th: "Winston profiles well as a backup point guard, but hes likely to get picked on defensively, and his lack of athletic upside limits the value proposition here. But it wont be a shocker if he figures out a way to stick as a second-unit playmaker."

Gary Parrish - CBS Sports - July 6th: "Cassius Winston is perceived to be limited because he's small and not the best athlete. He'll never measure or test great -- and that'll turn some franchises away. But he's smart, great in pick-and-roll situations and someone who has proven to be a high-level shooter in all four years of college by making 43.0% of the 602 3-pointers he attempted in his four-year college career."

NBA Draft Room - July 6th: "Athletically Winston is a bit limited by NBA standards. Hes 6-1 with OK burst/speed but not an explosive leaper or finisher. But he makes up for this with great handles, lots of ball fakes and good BBIQ."

Jeremy Woo - SI - May 6th: "His body type (and how well it will hold up in the NBA) continues to be an impediment for some scouts, but hes a great decision-maker and situational scorer with a knack for making positive things happen. Winston profiles well as a backup point guard, but hes likely to get picked on defensively, and his lack of athletic upside limits some of a lot of the value proposition here."Rob Dauster - NBC Sports - Apr. 13th: "He was playing his best basketball down the stretch, and he still have the highest basketball IQ of anyone in this 2020 NBA mock draft. Hes an elite passer and shooter that thrives in ball-screens. Yes, the defense and athleticism are concerns, but we said the same thing about numerous point guards that have made careers out of being backup point guards."

Sam Marsdale - 247 Sports - Apr. 11th: "Winston is one of the better college players in recent memory, and would end up in a very ideal situation here. He shot 43.2 percent from three-point range this past season."
