2023 Draft Profile - Scoot Henderson

Kyle Irving - Sporting News - June 21st: "In this scenario, the Blazers would get their point guard of the future in Henderson, who will be groomed by one of his favorite players in Lillard. The backcourt fit between Lillard and Henderson isn't seamless, but it's not impossible, either."

Gary Parrish - CBS Sports - June 20th: "Henderson, a super-athletic lead guard who skipped college for the G-League Ignite, should be no worse than the third player selected in this draft regardless of which franchise makes the call Thursday."

NBA Draft Room - May 16th: "Scoot is a special talent but there are some whispers that NBA teams donít see him as the clear no.2 player in this class."

John Fanta - Fox Sports - May 12: "Henderson's quickness provides for much-watch plays. The handle, explosiveness and swagger that he plays with give him such high upside at the age of only 19."

Tyler Byrum and Chase Hughes - NBC Sports - May 8th: "Henderson is the best point guard prospect the NBA has seen since LaMelo Ball in 2020, some might even say go back a year further to Ja Morant."

Bryan Kalbrosky - For the Win - May 5th: "Despite playing against the toughest professional competition, G League Ignite guard Scoot Henderson averaged 16.5 points while also adding 5.4 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game."

Krysten Peek - Yahoo! Sports - Jan. 30th: "He continues to look more comfortable playing with NBA spacing and rules and his explosiveness and decision-making are separating him from other guards at the top of the draft."

Chase Hughes - NBC Sports - Jan. 16: "Henderson's athleticism continues to jump off the screen as he gets by G-League defenders with ease off-the-dribble, both in transition and in the halfcourt. Though there is a wide gap when it comes to skill, the G-League isn't far off from the NBA purely in terms of the speed of the game and the length and athleticism of defenders."

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - Jan. 5th: "Explosive finishing, dribble creativity, mid-range scoring/shot-making, improved three-point shooting and enough playmaking have helped paint Henderson as the draft's second No. 1 overall talent."
