2024 Draft Profile - Johnny Furphy

Kevin O'Connor - The Ringer - June 17th: "He is constantly moving and displays the shooting prowess to someday be a major force launching 3s off screens and handoffs. Similarly, he is a hustler when sprinting in the open court on the fast break and going to the wing or corners for 3s."

NBA Draft Room - June 16th: "One of the hottest prospects in the land over the second half of the season, Furphy is a tall SG with a sweet release on his jumper. He’ll need to get stronger but has excellent athleticism, feel for the game and tons of natural talent."

Jeremy Woo - ESPN - June 7th: "His youth and considerable room for development both physically and skillwise should make him an attractive option for teams willing to be patient with his development."

Sam Vecenie - The Athletic - June 5th: "It’s easy to see why scouts are excited. He has a lot of the attributes NBA teams seek when identifying projects worth a long-term investment. It’s hard to find wings with Furphy’s physical profile."

Colin Ward-Henninger - CBS Sports - June 4th: "He's also shown signs of being a solid defensive playmaker with steals and blocks ... Most likely he'll spend most of his rookie year developing, and the benefits could be robust down the line."

Zach Buckley - Bleacher Report - June 4th: "Johnny Furphy felt like a candidate to stay at Kansas given his wiry-thin 189-pound frame and the defensive challenges it will present until he fills out. Still, it isn't a shock that teams would be intrigued enough by his blend of size and shooting to justify entering the draft."

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - May 30th: "Johnny Furphy's fairly simplistic and translatable combination of positional size, shooting and play-finishing could be enough for a team in the 20s. But his athletic-test results were disappointing at the combine, and a 189-pound frame at his size suggests he's at least a year from being physically ready for NBA minutes."
