NBA Draft

Jaden Springer

Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Springer spent only one season at Tennessee, and it was a good one. He averaged 12.5 points, 3.5 boards and 2.9 assists while shooting 46.7 percent overall and 43.5 percent from 3-point range. He also made 81 percent of his free-throw attempts. On defense, Springer also made a difference with 1.2 steals and 0.4 blocks per game.
ANALYSIS
Positives: Springer is only 18 years old, and already he has shown glimpses of becoming a high-caliber scorer and defender. Another positive is that he played some of his best basketball toward the end of last season, showing a development arc that scouts hope will continue into the NBA. His defense already is very good.
Negatives: Yes, Springer finished strong as a freshman, but a 25-game season is not exactly a huge sample size to determine whether he can excel in the NBA or if he will fizzle out over the coming years. He also will need to work on being more careful with the ball, as his assists-to-turnover ratio of 2.9 to 2.4 assists
